A 15-year-old student was attacked and knocked unconscious during a fight after school inside a Long Island City subway station Friday.

The incident, police said, took place at around 3 p.m. while the victim was waiting on the northbound E platform inside the Court Square subway station. The stop for the station is next to the Information Technology High School, located at 21-16 44th Rd., where the teen is a student, according to a report by NBC New York.

The victim was approached on the platform by an unidentified male and the pair then got into an argument. The dispute then turned violent, and the 15-year-old fell and struck his head during the brawl causing him to lose consciousness, police said.

During the incident, a larger group fight broke out between other young people at the station, according to NBC.

The teen was taken to Cornell Hospital in stable condition, police said. He later regained consciousness and is expected to survive, according to the NBC report.

It is unclear what sparked the initial dispute, or if the boy’s attacker is also a student at the school.

There are no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder.
