As many as 20 students were hurt when a student went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and hallways at the Franklin Regional High School in  Murrysville, PA, outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning. Up to 20 people have been injured because of the mass stabbing. Four to five individuals have been sent to local hospitals. Four victims are said to have serious injuries. The authorities are reporting that the suspect is in custody.

Victims, as young as 15, were taken to four Pittsburgh-area hospitals. Two were in the operating room and a third was on the way, Dr. Chris Kaufmann, a hospital trauma director, told CNN. One hospital reported that it had patients as old as 60.

The stabbings were reported at Franklin Regional High School, in the suburb of Murrysville. Ambulances swarmed the parking lot.

Stevens said that the first call for help from the school came at 7:13 a.m., shortly after the school opened its doors for the day. The situation was under control by 7:30 to 7:40, he said.

The school district website said that high school students and middle school students nearby were “secure,” and that elementary school had been canceled for the day. They cited “a critical incident” at the high school.

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.

UPDATE III: 22 injured in knife attack at Franklin Regional High School …’He was just stabbing everybody in his way.

The charges might not reflect all victims, according to Westmoreland County public safety spokesman Dan Stevens. Two other students were treated for injuries that were not from being stabbed.

Mr. Peck told the court that the suspect made some statements after school officials tackled him that indicated he wanted to die.

Defense attorney Patrick Thomassey described his client as a good student with no prior criminal record and no history of addiction to drugs or alcohol. He said his client is not a loner and interacts well with other students.

Mr. Thomassey described the incident as “bizarre” and asked for a mental evaluation to determine whether his client will be competent for an April 30 preliminary hearing.

UPDATE IV: Pa. High School Stabbing Suspect Alex Hribal Not ‘Well-Liked’

Suspect Alex Hribal has been charged with 4 counts of attempted homicide and will be tried as an adult.

The 16-year-old student accused of going on a stabbing rampage today at a Pennsylvania high school “wasn’t a real well-liked kid” and had previously made death threats, the brother of a witness told ABCNews.com.

Alex Hribal is a sophomore at Franklin Regional High School, where the bloodshed happened today, said police. He’s being held at a juvenile detention center in Westmoreland County after being charged with four counts of attempted criminal homicide, 21 counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a weapon on school property.
