Sheriff: 14 hurt in Texas college stabbings

Fourteen people were injured - two of them critically - in an attack Tuesday on the Cypress, Texas, campus of Lone Star College, a sheriff said.

Authorities first learned about the stabbings after receiving a 911 call at 11:12 a.m. (12:12 p.m. ET) Tuesday describing a "male on the loose stabbing people," Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Adrian Garcia said.

The alleged attacker - a student enrolled at the Texas school - was eventually taken into custody.

    Just sayin but.

    If this guy had a military rifle, there would be at least 14 DEAD on a Texas college campus. Do you all see the difference now? Do you all see how gun control can control the SEVERITY of these attacks?

    I can't wait to see you gun nuts come up with stupid arguements to that.

      But if they all would have had guns, this would have never happened. In fact they could have took turns shooting the stabber.

      But...but...we have to be ready to overthrow a tyrannical government. You know, because they arise every other day.

      sic semper tyrannis But only with guns, because knives kill too many people.

    Whew this caper almost involved guns. But I guess when it comes to mayhem with a stabbing instrument, this will be justifiable and even allow the attacker to go free next Monday.

    The absurdity of grabbing at this case to defend guns.
    Just say a prayer to the One above that this perp did not have an assault rifle handy or even just a hand gun.

      Or a helicopter. Those things have propellers that zoom around faster than light speed. Way dangerous. Seriously they should be banned.

    I see they are loading the hurt people in a helicopter. Those things are way dangerous. I hope the injured people will yell and say don't do that. No way you are going to get me onto one of those gizmos. Helicopters are bad scary.

    Not shocking really. Plenty of people get stabbed and beat down in schools and colleges on a routine basis.

    14 people, and every one of them survived. So glad there were no guns involved.
