Mass stabbing and chaos at a Houston college: More than a dozen victims, multiple suspects

At least 12 people have been injured in a Tuesday afternoon stabbing spree on the Cypress-Fairbanks campus of Lone Star College, according to KHOU Channel 11.

While the Harris County Sheriff's Office has not confirmed the number of victims, officials say that a male suspect has been detained by Cy-Fair ISD police. A second suspect remains at large, according to a statement from the school.

A Life Flight helicopter has lifted off from the campus with one victim and a second chopper just landed. Several ambulances are also on the scene amidst reports of victims suffering critical injuries.

An alert posted on the Lone Star website and sent to students via text asks that all on the Cy-Fair campus stay away from the area and seek shelter in a secure location. There are Twitter reports that the campus is on lockdown, but the school has not officially confirmed that.

“I had just left class out of the HSC building," student Margo Shimfarr-Evans tells KHOU.

"As we were leaving we saw the cops comings, I called to check on another classmate who was still inside the building and she said the classroom was on lockdown and she said one of the classmates had been stabbed. It happened in the hallway, we have a lab and lecture, and down the hallway it’s all lab classes and a classmate in the lab class got stabbed.”

The horrific violence comes less than two months after a gunman injured himself and two others in a January shooting on Lone Star's North Harris campus near Bush Intercontinental Airport.
