Suspect Charged in Texas Stabbing that Wounded 14

CYPRESS, Texas (AP) — A 20-year-old man from suburban Houston has been charged in a stabbing spree at a Texas community college that injured at least 14 people.

Sheriff’s officials say Dylan Quick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault in the Tuesday attack at Lone Star Community College in Cypress. The city is about 20 miles from Houston.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says in a statement that Quick used a “razor-type knife” to cut his victims, and pieces of the blade were found at the scene.

The sheriff’s office says Quick told investigators he’d had fantasies about stabbing people to death since he was in elementary school.

Investigators also say Quick indicated he’d been planning the attack for some time.

    Must have been an assault knife.

      Jeremy, your ignorant comment should be explained. If this jerk had an assault rifle there would be 14 DEAD, not 14 wounded.

    The weapon of choice here was reported to be an xacto type knife possibly used in animal dissections.

    Alpine: A 1/4″ Exacto knife is a deadly weapon in the hands of someone who knows how to use it. There are many large arteries that could be severed very easily.
