Today our home town of Pittsburgh was rocked by violence at a local area school. According to KDKA/AP a 16 year old boy who has now been identified stabbed over 24 students and staff member of Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville. It is very scary to think that after all the prep that has occurred to stop and evacuated for incidents like this, they were all for shooting.
KDKA has confirmed that 16-year-old Alex Hribal is the suspect arrested in the stabbings. He was taken into custody and treated for a minor hand wound. He attack occurred in crowded hallways just minutes before the start of school.Westmoreland County updated the victim count late Wednesday evening, saying 24-people had been injured. (21-students stabbed, 1-security guard stabbed, and 2-others injured)
At least five students were critically wounded, including a boy who was on a ventilator after a knife pierced his liver, missing his heart and aorta by only millimeters, doctors said. An injured school officer was discharged.
Our prayers are with all of the families.
