Texas university student kills 1, hurts 3 in campus stabbing spree

An attacker with a machete-like knife fatally stabbed one person and wounded at least three others Monday on the University of Texas campus, and authorities said a suspect was in custody.

The university police identified the suspect as Kendrex White, a 21-year-old student who was quickly arrested.

The student newspaper at the University of Texas, the Daily Texan, reported that the university had canceled classes and events for the rest of Monday as the investigation continued. A UT police officer saw a man, later identified as White, with a "large, bowie-style hunting knife", Carter said. One person died at the scene; the others were being treated at Brackenridge Hospital, Carter said.

Brown had graduated from high school in the Graham school district, northwest of Fort Worth, before enrolling at the university.

"It was described to us that the individual calmly walked around the plaza. and basically attacked these four unfortunate students", Carter said.

Furthermore, Chief Carter said it would be "premature" to discuss White's motive.

A stabbing attack by a student on the campus of the University of Texas has left one person dead and three others injured. The UT Police Department, the Austin Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety are continuing to investigate all reports and do not believe that there are any further threats at this time.

"He was always the sweetest guy, laughing, and having a good time with people". I thought about it as a fake knife or whatever, and then he just grabbed this guy by the shoulder and stabbed him in the back with it. A suspect is in custody and there is no ongoing threat, UT police said.

The People's Climate March is a little different, mainly because it exclusively focuses on climate science and climate change. President Donald Trump's 100th day in office will look a lot like his second: protests across the country.

All the victims were men, either 20 or 21 in age police said, adding there was no evidence the assailant was targeting Greek students.

UT President Greg Fenves said the investigation is ongoing. Carter said he didn't know what specifically was ailing White, "but he was obviously suffering from a particular issue".

He is an active member of the Black Health Professionals Organization student group on campus, said Melody Adindu, the group's new president.

Former high school classmate Angela Bonilla, who now attends UT, told the Herald that "no one expected him to do this".

According to an arrest affidavit, police arrested White on April 4 on a charge of driving while intoxicated after he was involved in a wreck on campus.

Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement that prayers go out to all those affected by Monday's tragic events in Texas, including the UT stabbings and the shooting of a paramedic in Dallas.
