About a Dozen Injured in Stabbing Attack at Texas College

lone-star-community-collegeOfficials say about a dozen people have been wounded in a stabbing attack at Houston-area college campus.

Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department spokesman Robert Rasa says 12 people were taken to area hospitals after the Tuesday attack on the Lone Star community college system’s campus in Cypress. The Harris County Sheriff’s department confirmed at least 11 people wounded and that authorities have one suspect in custody.

Both agencies say at least four of those injured were LifeFlighted in critical condition. Rasa says several patients refused treatment at the scene and all the wounds were consistent with stabbing.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Thomas Gilliland says authorities don’t believe a second suspect was involved. Lone Star had earlier posted an alert on its website warning of two armed suspects.

      And if the attacker had had a gun that headline would read ‘About a dozen dead’.

    Just goes to show ya, that if a person is out to hurt a bunch of people then they will do it with any kind of weapon. The weapon isn’t what hurts/kills people, it’s the people with the weapon that does the harm.

    We must insist that the Congress lawmakers put a total ban on all of the nasty “assult” knives. After all, they are deadly weapons and no one needs any of them. They were designed to kill and cut. Contact your representatives and express your feelings. The whole Nation will be safer after they are banned.

      Well then ban cars, trucks, motorcycles, and all eating utensils along with it. All these can be used to hurt/kill a person(s) also. But why ban anything. If a person wants to cause harm to a person they will. Whatever they use is not guilty of the crime, it is the person that uses it.
