So now we need knife control laws, right?
Probably an “assault knife”....
Three medical helicopters on the ground, a fourth already taken an injured (stabbed) victim to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.
Six people CONFIRMED stabbed. HS bldg evacuated (students at FR middle school).
Franklin Regional SD is in an eastern suburb of Pittsburgh. A really nice, upscale area.
WTAE saying that it is rumored to be a student actor.
Three helicopters have now take off. Multiple ambulances at scene also. Local and state police surrounding the scene.
Scary as hell. My kid is at a “neighboring” school district HS. He has sports teammates that go to FR.
prayers up everyone please!!!
No perp description. Perhaps an Amish student got out of hand?
Channel surfing between the 3 local tv stations. Perp is IN CUSTODY. No description given. No updates on victims other than severe enough for LifeFlights to transports by air.
Apparently perp was running and slashing.
How awful! Hope the kids aren’t seriously hurt.
They don’t know if it’s a knife, razor etc. also, (I’m not on FB) but EYEWITNESS students have taken to social media and are id’ing the actor. TV stations are NOT repeating name until police confirmation.
What is scary is so many had to be taken out by helicopter.
Amber Nicotra reporting that this happened in science wing of HS.
“...knife control laws...”
It’s already illegal to stab someone (unless in self-defense)...
But yeah... never underestimate the power of Stupid when it comes to democrat and RINO politicians to try and capitalize on someone else’s spilled blood.
Amish mayhem! That’s like Amish drive by shooting... clippety clop CLIPPETY CLOP bang! CLIPPETY CLOP clippety clop.
OK, seriously. Sounds like some mean spirited kid got bored, realized that he could create a scene like this, and said to himself what the hell, it’s time a fuss was made, I’ll stab somebody.
Best I can add is Franklin Regional is located in Murrysville, PA. A very nice upper middle class suburb east of Pittsburgh. It’s in Westmoreland County (a very red area in blue PA).
i grew up very near here, went to Kiski Area Sr HS, this is horrible!
I guess that’s one good thing about Facebook and modern smartphones. Folks who want to tell something, can. At once. No intimidation games.
unless the demographic makeup has changed dramatically, it is extremely unlikely to be muslim related.
almost forgot you.
I am really not sure of Franklin Regional demographics, but anecdotally there is small ROP presence here in Westmoreland County (and I only know this by seeing the scarves). ABSOLUTELY NO INDICATION OF MOTIVE OR ID OF PERP HAS BEEN REPORTED.
Yikes. WTAE showing another stretcher w/victim being shown wheeling out of HS main doors. Also one victim listed as critical.
Now we will have knife control measures. You will have to use your hands and teeth to do your kitchen prep.
Victims at Forbes Regional, UPMC Presbyterian, Mercy.
Michelle Wright saying MORE injuries in bldg.
