UPDATED: Student charged in Texas college stabbing attack

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:CYPRESS, Texas (AP) -- A 20-year-old man from suburban Houston has been charged in a stabbing spree at a Texas community college that injured at least 14 people.

Sheriff's officials say Dylan Quick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault in the Tuesday attack at Lone Star Community College in Cypress. The city is about 20 miles from Houston.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says in a statement that Quick used a "razor-type knife" to cut his victims, and pieces of the blade were found at the scene.

The sheriff's office says Quick told investigators he'd had fantasies about stabbing people to death since he was in elementary school.

Investigators also say Quick indicated he'd been planning the attack for some time.

UPDATE:
CYPRESS, Texas (AP) -- Officials say at least 14 people have been wounded in a stabbing attack at Houston-area college campus.

The Harris County Sheriff's department confirmed at least 14 people were wounded in the attack Tuesday on the Lone Star Community College System's campus in Cypress.

Authorities say at least four of those injured were taken by medical helicopter to hospitals in critical condition. Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department spokesman Robert 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.

CYPRESS, Texas (AP) -- A sheriff's official says one person has been arrested in a suspected stabbing attack at a Houston-area community college campus.

Alan Bernstein of the Harris County Sheriff's Office doesn't know how many people were hurt in the Tuesday attack on the Lone Star community college system's campus in Cypress, but multiple people could be seen being loaded into medical helicopters.

Bernstein says authorities have one suspect in custody.

Lone Star posted an alert on its website just before 12 p.m. warning students of two armed suspects and saying one person remains at large. The alert warned people to seek shelter in a secure location.

A different Lone Star system campus was the site of a January shooting. Two people were wounded, and a 22-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault.
