“16-year-old Pennsylvania boy was charged Wednesday evening with two dozen felony counts after 20 students and a security guard were stabbed or slashed at a suburban Pittsburgh high school.
The boy, identified as Alex Hribal, a sophomore at Franklin Senior Regional High School in Murrysville, was held without bail on four counts of attempted homicide, 21 counts of aggravated assault and a misdemeanor count of carrying a prohibited weapon.
At least four people remained in intensive care with life-threatening injuries after the rampage Wednesday morning at Franklin Senior Regional High School in the town of Murrysville.
Hribal was remanded to juvenile detention pending a preliminary hearing April 30 in Westmoreland County Magisterial Court.
Prosecutors told Judge Charles R. Conway that Hribal “randomly and indiscriminately” wielded his knives in a hallway at the school and indicated that “he wanted to die.”
Hribal was well-known to many at Franklin High, who called him a good student — certainly not someone you would expect to go off violently.
“I don’t know what could possibly motivate him to do it,” Shane Molyneaux told NBC News in an email interview.
“He was somewhat friendly. He was very smart,” Molyneaux said. “He was not bullied and he did not seem like a mean kid. He did have friends.”
But for some reason, he left the home he’s lived in since he was 2 years old Wednesday morning — on the same Murrysville street as the home of the assistant principal whom authorities credited with subduing him — and arrived at school with two 8-inch-long long straight knives, according to the criminal complaint.”
Note from us,
It’s not safe anymore really.
We send our prayers to everyone effected by this.
