Student Arrested In Texas College Stabbings
(CNN) A student is under arrest after at least 14 people were injured in a stabbing incident Tuesday morning at Lone Star College’s CyFair campus in the Houston area, officials said.
Authorities have detained one suspect at the campus in Cypress, Texas — so far the only suspect at this point, a sheriff’s spokesman told reporters Tuesday afternoon.
Student Maya Khalil, 19, was in class in the campus’ health sciences building when the incident happened, she said. She managed to take photos of the chaotic scene as it unfolded.
“It was really scary,” Khalil said.
Authorities released different accounts of how many people were wounded.
Robert Rasa, a spokesman for the CyFair Volunteer Fire Department, said 15 people were hurt. Sheriff’s officials said 14 people were wounded.
The school was on lockdown Tuesday afternoon while authorities combed the campus to ensure no other injured people or attackers were there, Harris County sheriff’s spokesman Alan Bernstein said.
