Teen Accused Of School Stabbing Charged As Adult


(Murrysville, PA) Twenty people were hurt in a stabbing Wednesday morning at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, PA outside Pittsburgh.

The alleged attacker, a 16-year-old Alex Hribal, is being charged as an adult according to CNN.

The teen reportedly used two kitchen knives.

An assistant principal and school officer tackled the teen.

Victims were stabbed in their torso, abdomen, chest and back areas, and two people were sent to surgery immediately after arriving.

The students who were hurt range in age from 14 to 17.

A doctor who treated six of the victims, primarily teens, said most initially did not know what happened.

“They just felt pain and noticed they were bleeding,” Dr. Timothy VanFleet, chief of emergency medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, told CNN.

“Almost all of them said they didn’t see anyone coming at them. It apparently was a crowded hallway and they were going about their business, and then just felt pain and started bleeding.”

Student Mia Meixner said the student was always nice and quiet, “No. He was very quiet. He just was kind of doing it,” Meixner answered. “And he had this, like, look on his face that he was just crazy and he was just running around just stabbing whoever was in his way.”

      No Dave…..sigh…….we won’t have to turn in our knives. But there will probably be some legislation about REGISTERING them. I guess we need to start a NKA a (National Knife Association) pretty soon. I’m sure Nancy Pe-lostie is right on top of this with her vast knowledge of assault weapons. “We have to pass this legislation so we can see what is in it.”

    They will report is as an “Automatic Assault Style” knife. Will they be calling for a ban on knives?

      No Wsuz, I am not talking about fairy tales. I am talhing about The All mighty Living GOD . The one you read about in the oldest history book in the world, The HOLY BIBLE. I am sure you have never read it tho.

      • A.C.Carter

        If more people would read the Holy Bible and follow Gods instructions, this world would be much better off.

        Yea that’s why were at war because one person said god wants you to fly airplanes into a building, and another idiot says he consulted with jebus and got his OK to invade another country

      Not a fairy tale. Life is meant to be hell and difficult. This is God’s intent. Through strife we fall or become better. It is all a test. Those who do not believe, usually, use to believe but thought life would be all sugar if they did. Obviously, they were let down because they are misinformed. So, they whine and shed God from their life.

      If you don’t keep faith through the hardest times of your life…you fail.

      Your comment and others such as yours is why the country is so messed up. Do some of you people ever take anything serious. Parents today just don’t and will not accept that there could be something wrong with their kids, therefore these kind of things will continue to happen. Somebody in that school knew something was going on with this kid, but I will bet you when addressed there was complete denial all around.

    • A.C.Carter

      Dixie, Please show me any Place in GODS Holly Bible where God said to fly a plane into a building.Please read your Bible Especially the New Testament . To many are hearing from and obeying Satan, Not God.

    Amazing the type of discourse that takes place when its one of the “lillies”. Mental issues, bullying, problems at home….Truly amazing. One can only wonder what would be said if this idiot was of a different skintone. Go right ahead and spew that wonderful, hateful rhetoric if you must, call me names if you will, however, the truth is the truth. Oh how I love when the chickens come home to roost.

  • Sportzfanz

    Nunya Business – when I mentioned bullying, I wasn’t thinking of skin color.
    I still don’t know what the skin color of this person is.

    Back in the old days, 1953-57, my high school principal had a “board of education” that must have been 3 feet long with which he “educated” those he felt worthy of punishment. If anybody had been stupid enough to use a knife on his pupils he would have used that board like a samurai sword and a cut the idiot down with it.

    • A.C.Carter

      That was back in the good ole days. If I got a whopping from a teacher at school and my Dad found out about it, I got another whopping when I got home. Today they want to file a law suit against the teacher.

  • mumbo jumbo

    It seems as if someone reported my other post. It seems pretty obvious that certain positions cannot withstand scrutiny or logic or simple reasoning. So here it is again:

    Baloney. Those that believe such nonsense need only ask for forgiveness telepathically to an invisible guy in the sky and all is well.
    Those without belief in such superstition must carry the guilt for their actions.
    If your belief in an eternal reward is the only thing keeping you from being a violent, raging criminal, then you should really question yourself.
    Implying that those without faith are morally inferior is incredibly insulting and ignorant. In fact, the bible to which you refer in another post is full of things that a moral person without religion would never imagine doing.

  • A.C.Carter

    You got your name right Just, “mumbo jumbo” is all you have. Buy A Holly Bible and read it.The oldest History book in the world and you will see that the Bibles Prophetic word is coming true. Lord,Please Open the eyes of all these ignorant people.
