15 People Stabbed at Houston-Area Campus

April 09, 2013  | 

A community college student stabbed 15 people Tuesday morning at a Houston-area vocational school before Harris County Sheriff's deputies took him into custody.

The suspect has been identified as 20-year-old Dylan Andrew Quick, a student at Lone Star College's Cy-Fair campus. The stabbings occurred at about 11:20 a.m.

Eric Betrand, a fellow student who previously worked in the Marine Corps, told KHOU that he wrestled Quick to the ground with the help of three other students.

Quick used some type of knife or pencil and told police he'd been having fantasies of stabbing people to death since he was a child, reports the Houston Chronicle. Psychiatric tests have been ordered for the suspect.

This is the second incident this year at the college. On Jan. 22, three people were wounded in a shooting at Lone Star's North Harris campus. Lone Star has six campuses and specializes in vocational education.

A responsible citizen with a CCW could have stopped that attack. Hint hint, STUPID LIBERALS

Horrible situation but glad to see that it was a Stabbing and not a shooting. Sadly proving what so many of us keep telling these naive fools, " Guns Don't Kill People, People kill People " .. They will always find a way even if having to just use a rock or their bare hands. Wake Up people !!

Better get the Kitchen Knives Ban filed with congress today. Don't want anyone to be able to purchase the post ban Ginsu 2000's.

RICHARD ISAACS @ 4/9/2013 5:29 PM

wow what timing. was mr pshcho trying to prove a point about gun control or is he just another crazy that will kill just for the sake and joy of watching the life drain from the eyes of a living loving human being.

The obvious solution is for the feds to pass an emergency ban on purchase, manufacture or possession of all sharp instruments, including pencils. There must not be any “grand father” clauses and it must be shoved through without debate tomorrow or by Friday at the latest so the banner-in-chief can sign it without interfering with his planned weekend activities. They must act quickly before the emotional trauma of this event subsides in order to prevent further tragedies from happening. The ban should include extremely harsh penalties for possessing any such items, including pencils, within ten miles of any school property. If such a law cannot make it past evil legislators who enjoy seeing violent attacks on defenseless victims continue, a simple twenty-seven page Executive Order will certainly solve the problem. You know, “stroke of the pen, law of the land.”
The courageous student that wrestled the attacker to the ground will have to undergo psychological counseling to quell his willingness to use violence to stop violence.
Hopefully all the victims of this attack will fully recover physically and emotionally.

We need to make sure that the general public cannot possess more than two pencils. Further, we need to make sure the pencils have #2 lead, not the heavy duty stuff, like #2.5 lead pencils.

We cannot forget about the "Assualt Rifle" of pencils...the Mechanical Pencil. These pencils can carry excessive lead, there will have to be a limit to how much lead may be carried. I am stocking up on pencils now before the ban takes place.

Tim @ 4/10/2013 4:32 AM

The news repoerted it was a former Marine who chased, tackled and subdued the suspect until police arrived... Semper Fidelis...

mike @ 4/10/2013 5:06 AM

Better hurry. I understand the price of pencils just tripled!! Walmart has already run out of pencils but is taking backorders. The price of lead jumped 200% since this story came out. Good job citizen warrior!!!

What is wrong with all of you experts? Don't you realize that the problem is not with guns, knives, pencils or people the problem is with the fact the Pluto is no longer considered a planet, which has caused the gravitational effect of the solar system to be changed which has a direct impact on our brains.....like mine!!

WVSheepdog @ 4/10/2013 5:59 AM

@Trigger - Someone else who mourns the loss of Pluto as a planet...But unfortunately the damage caused by the gravitational shift is irreversible, even if we were able to restore the balance. And, it will be easier to get the US Legistlative branch to pass laws which infringe on law-abiding citizens' ability to possess knives and/or pencils than it will to get them to pass laws prohibiting gravitational shift, even though gravitational shift harms more people than knives, pencils and firearms put together.

Steve @ 4/10/2013 9:21 AM

A gun toting citizen could have ended this fast. Hurry and buy your knives now...they'll be banned next!

MIKE @ 4/10/2013 11:01 AM

WOW!! NOW OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE ANOTHER "HUGE CHALLANGE" TO DEBATE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS, CRAYONS INSTEAD OF PENCILS FOR ANY STUDENT THAT DISPLAYS ANY MENTAL HANDICAPS. I WONDER IF THE NRA HAS AN OPINION.

lloyd @ 4/10/2013 11:48 AM

next thing they will try to ban assault knives.

Tom Ret @ 4/10/2013 3:35 PM

Didn't President Obama recently say we need legislation if it only serves to save one child!

Random @ 4/10/2013 10:43 PM

It was probably a prohibited kinife; we have so many knife laws. The best article on the subject I have read:

What? Pluto is not a planet? Next they will be telling us that Pluto, the cartoon dog is not real!

Can't wait to complete my background check for my steak knives. 3/4 inch length blades will be the max, since that is the average thickness of store-bought steaks. National Registry, here we come!

Liberals and Hemorrhoids hang out in the same place.
