    Default 20 Wounded in School Stabbing

    20 injured in Pittsburgh-area high school stabbings
    updated 10:13 AM EDT, Wed April 9, 2014

    (CNN) -- At least 20 students were injured Wednesday morning in a stabbing incident at Franklin Regional Senior High School in the Pittsburgh area, said Dan Stevens, an emergency management agency spokesman.

    The stabbings happened in classrooms and a hallway, he said, adding that a suspect -- a male student -- was in custody.

    Four people were flown to hospitals by helicopter, Stevens said.

    Dr. Chris Kaufmann at Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, spoke to CNN on air. He said the facility is treating seven teens with stab wounds to their torso, abdomen, chest and back areas. He said that the injuries were "quite serious" and that "some are clearly life-threatening." An adult is also being treated there, he said.

    He said two of the victims being treated at Forbes Regional were sent to surgery almost immediately on arrival. Those two patients had low blood pressure, he said. A third was being prepared for surgery Wednesday morning, and the rest were being evaluated to see whether surgery was necessary, he said.

    A message on the Franklin Regional School District's website said all of its elementary schools were closed after the incident, and "the middle school and high school students are secure."

    Information on what led to the stabbings and the conditions of the injured were not immediately released.

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

    The school is in Murrysville, about 15 miles east of downtown Pittsburgh.

    Later Wednesday morning, students were being released to their parents, Stevens said. Shortly before 10 a.m. ET, CNN affiliate KDKA reported that some parents were beginning to be reunited with their children.

    Bill Rehkopf, a KDKA radio host and Franklin Regional High School graduate, reported on air that he was shocked by the stabbings.

    He kept thinking, "It doesn't happen here, it can't happen here," he said.

    He said he was seeing parents showing up at the school and an increasing media presence. Parents appear to be calm, he said. Another KDKA reporter said she spoke with a parent who said she received a cell phone call from her daughter, who told her mother that "something bad" happened and that she needed to be picked up.

    A media briefing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. ET at Forbes Regional Hospital.

    Well it will be interesting to see what drastic measures are taken. Here in CT after Sandyhook the knee jerk reaction by our legislature was just unbelievable. They were very quick to ban "Scary" guns, high capacity mags, registration of mags and all firearms. The list goes on. Hopefully they will react logically to this and not decide that some new bullshit law could possibly prevent it in the future.

    hard to ban a household utensil. Fortunately this kid only had access to the kitchen and got a gun rack.

    Hopefully the kids all recover.

    Doctors are saying all should survive.

    I'm certain that wouldn't be the case if the suspect had an AR-15....


    ...yeah I just said that.


    Anyway, I wonder what kind of medication this kid was on (or not on); or how much bullying he dealt with, etc.

    i read on a website (that may or may not be right) that it was a steak knife. But who knows if that's accurate. Not that is matters. Bunch of kids got stabbed, that's the important thing. We could look at how we got the weapon later. But my kitchen has pretty large knives in it as do most.

    Instead of looking at the way kids are hurting each other, maybe we should look at why feel the need to do this? Our society is breeding a bunch of fucked up kids.

    You band guns, they will use knives. You ban knives, they will use forks.

    hard to kill alot of people with forks. but once we ban those then we're down to spoons and you can't do much damage with a spoon.

    But you're right, cases like this aren't all about guns (or knives in this case). Does limiting access to weapons that can kill help? Of course, you'd need to be a damn fool to think otherwise. But we need to look at the underlying issues at play. Why are people (almost exclusively young white males) doing this stuff? My house had 50 knives in it, I've never thought to take one of them and start stabbing people. If my house has a gun in it, it would have a tonne of dust on it. Something is fucked up with these kids. We need to figure out what it is.

    Just horrible. I feel for all the people on and around that campus.

    We should all keep in mind that the basic trend over the last 20+ years is a decrease in the rate of violence on K-12 campuses (as well as a less solid trend downward for total homicides), and there is no pattern--no increase or decrease--in mass shootings.

    So while we're hearing about this more since, it isn't necessarily happening more, nor hurting or killing more kids.

    Gun nonsense aside, you have to be seriously crazy/determined to succeed at stabbing 20 different people in one incident. That is a baked individual.
