7 life threatening injuries


The number of victims is now up to 20


I am watching HLN and they are saying 8 injured.


MURRYSVILLE, Pa. —At least six people have been injured in a reported stabbing Wednesday morning at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, according to Westmoreland County emergency management.

One of the patients has been flown to a hospital in a medical helicopter. Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville is taking several of the other patients.

Several police cars and ambulances are at the school. Three medical helicopters are also there, ready to transport any of the injured.

A student reported that someone came into the school with a knife and started slashing people, including some of his friends. That information has not been confirmed by police.

A woman told Pittsburgh's Action News 4 that her son was in the hall, getting ready for class, when he heard screaming and saw someone stabbing students.

Police have one person in custody but have not released that person's name yet.

Students have begun to come out of the building  and are gathered around the main entrance while emergency responders remain at the scene and police officers check the school room by room.

School buses are lined up on the campus, waiting to take students home for the day.

A parent said she was told by a school security employee that middle school students will be dismissed first and bused home. Meanwhile, the high school remains on lockdown until the school can safely dismiss those students.
