Lone Star College stabbing: At least 14 wounded, suspect in custody
At least 14 people were wounded in an apparent mass stabbing at Lone Star College's CyFair campus in Cypress, Texas, on Tuesday. The suspect, armed with what one witness described as an X-Acto knife, was detained.
The school was placed on lockdown.
"Seek shelter now," Lone Star's Twitter feed warned Tuesday afternoon. "If away, stay away."
The incident occurred near and around the school's Health Science Center and remains an active crime scene, police said.
Four victims were transported by helicopter with serious injuries "consistent with laceration," a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff's Office said. Two others were taken by ambulance to a local trauma center. The rest were treated for minor injuries.

Black Blade: The victims were unarmed and denied the right to defend themselves under Texas law. Lone Star police were only minutes away. Thanks a lot Texas!
