14 Hurt In Texas Campus Stabbing
by News

At least 14 people were hurt Tuesday in a stabbing spree at a Texas community college, authorities said. Sheriff's officials said a suspect was in custody.

At least two victims were in critical condition. It was not immediately clear how severe the other injuries were. The stabbing happened at the CyFair campus of Lone Star College, in the Houston suburb of Cypress.

Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center said it had two patients in critical condition and six in all, including four flown there by helicopter. A spokeswoman for another hospital, North Cypress Medical Center, said it had taken six stabbing victims who were in stable condition.

The school closed for the day and ordered students to find shelter somewhere safe. Campus police caught the suspect, the Harris County Sheriff�s Office said.

The stabbing happened at 11:20 a.m., Lone Star College said in a statement. The school had warned students that a second suspect might be at large, but sheriff�s officials said later that they believed they had the only suspect in custody.

In January, three people were shot at a separate campus of the same college. A federal official said that those shootings appeared to be gang-related. A 22-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault.

The Lone Star system of colleagues has 90,000 students in all.
