Dead, Three Injured in Stabbing at University of Texas: Authorities

03 May, 2017, 01:52 | Author: Rickey Alvarado

One person was killed and three others were injured Monday at the University of Texas after a student went on a stabbing spree, authorities said.

Multiple people were stabbed, leaving at least one dead, at the University of Texas at Austin, paramedics said.

According to People, Kendrex J. White, 21, stabbed the four a little before 2 p.m. on campus.

"They don't want to walk to classes tomorrow", according to University of Texas Austin freshman Rachel Prichett, who said she was standing in line at a food truck near the gym when she suddenly heard screaming.

"It was described to us that the individual calmly walked around the Gregory gymnasium plaza and basically attacked these four unfortunate students there", said UTPD Chief David Carter.

Police found the suspect armed with a "bowie-style" hunting knife, prompting an officer to draw their weapon. Texts to students showed a almost 30-minute lag between the arrest and warning, even though city and county emergency offices were tweeting about the incident when they first responded.

"This breaks my heart to have to announce this", Fenves said.

"This was not a conspiracy", Carter said.

The business also recently disclosed a quarterly dividend, which was paid on Saturday, February 18th. The company has dropped -77.29% in past 3 months and in the last five trades has moved down -8.85%.

There were also many students upset and frustrated by how long it took for campus police to issue an emergency alert. Carter says police were not anxious that a suspect was still loose on campus.

Authorities do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the campus community but have increased patrols as a precaution.

"We are going to actively investigate this along with law enforcement and do everything we can to continue to work on making campus safety a top priority", Fenves said Monday. "P$3 lease keep your thoughts and prayers with the victims and their families during this very hard time".

UT-Austin President Gregory Fenves said in a statement Monday night, "I ask that our entire community come together to support the victims and their families".

Monday evening, Graham Independent School District identified the deceased as Harrison Brown, who was a part of Graham High School's graduating class of 2016. Her body was discovered near a creek and investigators declared her death a homicide.

This was the second homicide at UT-Austin in the previous year and a half. Forensics tests later showed Weiser had also been sexually assaulted. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a hoodie.

The UT Tower, which looms nearby, was the site of the 1966 shooting where student Charles Whitman killed 14 and injured 31. The trial for Meechaiel Criner, 18, is scheduled to begin in October.
