More than a dozen people were wounded when a suspect went building-to-building in a stabbing attack at a Texas college campus Tuesday.
The attack about 11:20 a.m. on the Lone Star Community College System campus sent at least 12 people to area hospitals, including four people taken by helicopter, according to volunteer fire department spokesman Robert Rasa. He said several people refused treatment at the scene and all the wounds were consistent with stabbing.
Deputies confirmed at least 14 people were wounded and spokesman Thomas Gilliland said police had one suspect in custody.
School administrators and employees initially urged people on campus, about 25 miles northwest of downtown Houston, to take shelter and be on alert for a second suspect. But Gilliland said a short time later that investigators believed just one person was responsible. He did not say whether the suspect is a student.
“It was the same suspect going from building to building,” Gilliland said.
