School stabbing in Pennsylvania renews fears

Richard Simon, Alana Semuels and Tina Susman (The Los Angeles Times)
MURRYSVILLE, Pa. — The hallways were buzzing with pupils arriving for classes at Franklin Regional Senior High School when screams, shouts and the thunder of running feet broke the morning routine.
"Run, run! He has a knife!" a teacher yelled Wednesday as a boy charged through the first-floor corridor, slashing and stabbing anyone who got in his way in a melee that unfolded like a scene from a horror film.
He fought off a group of boys who tried to pin him down. By the time he was tackled by a security guard and vice principal, he had wounded at least 19 classmates, including three who underwent surgery for what doctors called deep, life-threatening puncture wounds. Two adults also were injured, including the security guard who helped subdue the assailant.
All of the victims were expected to survive, but school officials, students and parents were left shaken by the latest bloody rampage at what should be a safe haven: a public school.

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. — The student charged in a bloody high school knife attack Wednesday is a small, slight teen who was teased at school, a classmate says.
Alex Hribal was so small and quiet "he was like a shadow in the hallways," said Kaitlyn Pepper, 16, who stood shivering after an outdoor candlelight vigil Wednesday evening at Calvary Lutheran Church, not far from Franklin Regional High School where they both attended.
Kaitlyn, a sophomore, had had one class with Hribal last year. She recalled that he was small for his age — "like a little boy," she said — and that he was teased.

A 16-year-old Pennsylvania student was charged as an adult with multiple counts of attempted homicide and assault in the stabbing rampage that left 22 people wounded at his high school on Wednesday, a police official said.
Murrysville police Captain Rob Liermann identified the teen as Alex Hribal and said he faced four counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault. A preliminary hearing is expected in seven to 10 days, he added.
The attacker moved stealthily through Franklin Regional High School, stabbing his victims in the torso and slashing arms and faces before anyone realized what was happening, students and officials said. Some of the injured taken to nearby hospitals were in critical condition, doctors said.
