 As many as 20 students were hurt when a classmate went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and halls of a high school outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The student suspect was in custody and being questioned by police, Dan Stevens, a Westmoreland County emergency management spokesman, told WPXI, the NBC affiliate in Pittsburgh. He said that the motive was unclear and that the injuries did not appear life-threatening.

Victims, as young as 15, were taken to four Pittsburgh-area hospitals. Two were in the operating room and a third was on the way, Dr. Chris Kaufmann, a hospital trauma director, told CNN. One hospital reported that it had patients as old as 60.

You mean what is with all these boys, not all these people. Mass shooters are men and boys.

I guess because it wasn't a gun, the anti-2nd admendment crowd will remain quiet.

 Huh? You know if a gun had been used, we wouldn't be talking only about "injured" people. Wake up.

I want this crap to stop. When will we learn that you can only push people so far? We are so disconnected from one another, someone should have seen the signs.

Did you read the article? There was no shooting...he used a knife.

You don't know that. 2nd, this is just as bad as if someone using a gun. Injured or not. But no one will want to talk about banning knives. . Now it's ok to talk about mental health, because a knife was used. But if a gun was used, we don't talk about mental health.
