|16-year old in custody after a stabbing spree in a Pittsburg High School|
What Is This World Coming To? As aforementioned, in a prior post, 25 Year Old Female Robs and Kills Beauty Shop Owner, it seems that this generation has no respect or value for human life.
The latest chain of events to unravel, is one of the reasons, I've simply concluded this. Earlier this morning, newsfeeds and timelines overflowed with reports of a high school stabbing spree, that resulted in 20 plus victims all suffering from stab wounds. Seven of the twenty victims were critically wounded.
As the plot thickens, the perpetraitor, who is now in custody, was a 16-year old sophomore student, who apparently showed up to school with two knives and decided to go on a stabbing spree.
NBC News reports,
A student flashing two knives went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and halls of a high school outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, authorities said. At least 19 students and a security guard were hurt, some with life-threatening injuries.
The suspect, a 16-year-old sophomore, was in custody and being questioned by police, authorities said. His motive was unclear, said Dan Stevens, a Westmoreland County emergency management spokesman.
The first photo of the suspect emerged several hours after the mayhem. NBC News is blurring the face of the teen in the photo, from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, because of his age. He had not been charged or identified.
The student was “flashing two knives around” as he moved through the classrooms and a first-floor hallway, said Thomas Seefeld, the Murrysville police chief. A principal tackled the stabber, he said. The security guard suffered a stomach wound.
This is sad, it seems that it's not even safe to send your kids to school anymore.
