Police Identify 16-Year-Old Who Stabbed 20 Students In Pennsylvania High School
SMH…this kid just looks like he has mental issues! The 16-year old who went on a stabbing spree at a Pennsylvania high school has been identified as Alex Hribal. Read the rest of the details below…
As classes began at a high school in suburban Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, a 16-year-old student walked through the hallway stabbing and slashing students with two large knives, the authorities said.
By the time the student was tackled by an assistant principal, he had stabbed 20 students and a security guard and sent students running from the school, officials said. At least four of the students had serious wounds to the abdomen and torso but were expected to survive.
The suspect, Alex Hribal, was treated for cuts to his hand at a hospital before he was taken into custody. He was charged as an adult on Wednesday with four counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault.
The attack at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pa., a suburb about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, began shortly after 7 a.m., officials said. The teenager stabbed students with two knives that were 8 to 10 inches long, the police said.
The police said they were investigating whether the student might have been bullied, but they said they did not have concrete evidence of it.
A sophomore, Cameron Lazor, said she saw the 16-year-old student stab four students, including one teenager who was slashed in the arm as he tried to protect two classmates. The teenager had a “serious look” in his eye as he passed her in the hallway, she said.
“It seemed like he was targeting some people,” she said. “But anyone who got in his way, he was hurting them too.”
A friend took her hand, and they went running out of the school. In a parking lot outside, Ms. Lazor said, she saw many bloody students with injuries to the abdomen and arms.
On Wednesday evening, at least four victims remained in critical condition, hospital officials said. One of the most seriously injured was a 17-year-old male student who was stabbed in the torso, just barely missing his heart, doctors at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center said at a news conference. Doctors said they were hopeful that the student, who was on life support, would survive. The hospital system said it had three other patients in fair and good condition.
Three other patients were in critical condition at Forbes Hospital in Pittsburgh, the trauma center closest to the high school. The three male students had abdominal wounds and were being treated in the intensive care unit, the hospital said. Three other teenagers at the hospital were in fair condition.
At a news conference on Wednesday evening, Chief Thomas Seefeld of the Murrysville Police Department said the attack had lasted about five minutes. The student was confronted by a school security guard, but the guard was unable to subdue him and was stabbed in the abdomen.
At one point, a student pulled a fire alarm. Students and staff members who had been unaware of the attack then fled, which might have saved more people from being harmed.
“It could have been a lot worse,” Mr. Seefeld said.
An assistant principal, Sam King, eventually tackled the student, Mr. Seefeld said.
Gov. Tom Corbett of Pennsylvania said there were many heroes at the school, including students, cafeteria workers and teachers who helped one another after the attacks.
“As a parent and grandparent, I can think of nothing more distressing than senseless violence against children,” Governor Corbett said in a statement.
Chief Seefeld said investigators were looking into reports of a threatening phone call between the 16-year-old and another student the night before.
The high school will be closed for several days, said Gennaro Piraino, superintendent of Franklin Regional School District. The district will provide counseling for students.
Ms. Lazor said she had known the suspect since they were children, and that they had played on a soccer team together for a decade and rode the same bus to school. She said she did not understand why the student, who was shy, would attack their classmates.
“It was just a normal day,” she said. “I can’t grasp that it happened right in front of my eyes.” – Via NYTimes
SMH…sad situation for everyone involved.
