Abilene, TX – Two students were stabbed in what officials are calling a targeted attack at Abilene High School on Thursday morning.
The incident occurred on the high school campus located in the 280-block of North 6th Street just before classes started at 8 a.m. on Jan. 16, KTAB reported.
One student allegedly committed a brutal attack on two classmates with a knife.
Police said that suspect had recently been suspended and probably targeted his victims in retaliation for a recent altercation he had with them, KTAB reported.
Both of the students who were stabbed were rushed to the hospital via ambulance.
There is no word on what condition the victims were in, according to KTAB.
The suspect fled the scene after he attacked his classmates, but police tracked him down a short time later.
He was arrested at about 8:36 a.m., KTAB reported.
Classes and other school operations resumed after the stabbings because police believe the attack was an isolated, targeted incident.
However, KTAB reported that a crowd and commotion remained near the cafeteria.
Abilene Independent School District called the stabbings “the worst thing that can happen at a school like this.”
All three of the students involved were believed to be about 16 years old, according to KTAB.
