Apparently, this college didn’t have an med school tool-free zone:
The first reports that something was terribly wrong on the Cy-Fair Campus of the Lone Star College system came via social media. A tweet around 11:20 a.m. Tuesday that there had been a stabbing on campus. Moments later, the calls started flooding into 911 that multiple people on the campus had been stabbed. It appeared that the suspect was attacking people at random with some sort of weapon.
From first witness accounts, it was chaotic. Some students report seeing fellow students stabbed in front of them. Those students ran into nearby classrooms asking for anyone to call 911.
One picture tweeted to @myfoxhouston showed a classroom with tables and chairs pushed in front of the doors as a makeshift barricade. The first 911 calls indicated five stabbing victims, however as emergency crews started arriving that number quickly started to grow to more than a dozen. Four victims with severe stab wounds to the face and neck were taken by Life Flight medical helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital – Texas Medial Center, a level 1 trauma center. Two other victims were taken to the same hospital by ambulance.
Five other victims received initial treatment at the scene and were determined to have less serious injuries and were taken by ambulance or private vehicle to Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital.
If college campuses weren’t gun-free zones, perhaps this tool would have been on ice by now instead of enjoying the celebrity of slicing up his peers with an exacto knife or scalpel.
