CYPRESS, Texas - 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.
U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) addressed today’s tragedy at Lone Star College moments ago on the Senate floor:
“I think it’s appropriate to say here and now that our thoughts and our prayers are with the victims and their families. We hope that law enforcement finds those responsible and makes sure they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
