CLOVER, SC (WBTV) -

A teenager is facing attempted murder charges and will be tried in court as an adult after reportedly getting into a fight with a high school classmate at school on Tuesday.

WBTV has learned that the fight happened at Clover High School on Tuesday morning around 8:15 a.m. in a hallway before classes started.

An arrest warrant states that Arkiva "Aj Rashon" Hunter, 16, picked up a freshman in the air and slamming his head into a concrete floor.

The warrant says Hunter "continued to strike him in the head with his fist afterwards" causing the younger boy critical injuries.

That juvenile was taken to Carolinas Medical Center to be treated after the fight.  Hunter was charged with attempted murder.

Officials say the attack was premeditated and recorded by several students.

WBTV has learned that no weapons were involved in the altercation.

The York County Sheriff's Office has jurisdiction over Clover High School and is investigating the incident.

Officials are still looking into why Hunter attacked the 16-year-old junior.

WBTV spoke with a parent at the high school and a student who couldn't believe Hunter would commit an attack.

"He's not a bad kid. The actions he took yesterday wasn't his main thing. His main goal wasn't to hurt that kid that bad," said classmate Austin Splawn.

"As a parent, it's very scary. My daughter goes to school every day and I expect for her to be safe and I come home and hear something like this, it's very frightening," said parent Barbara Jones.

Hunter was released on $15,000 bond Tuesday night. School officials confirm he's been suspended from school.

WBTV reached out to CMC officials for a condition of the victim, but was told he's no longer listed in their service.

The Clover School District issued a statement to WBTV on Wednesday morning saying "our thoughts and prayers are with both students, both families involved."
