1 dead, 3 hurt in University of Texas stabbings

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley added, "There is no evidence linking this to any part of a larger plan".

"This was not a conspiracy".

White recently had been involuntarily committed and later released in another city, according to Carter, who provided no other details.

The 21-year-old suspect, Kendrex J. White, was armed with a large hunting knife.

UT-Austin Police Chief David Carter confirmed the arrest and injuries during a joint press conference at 4pm with school President Gregory Fenves and Brian Manley, interim chief at the Austin Police Department.

The student who was fatally stabbed was identified as freshman Harrison Brown.

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

"I clapped my hands over his wound", Dania said. Then it was just me, the guy who I was helping and the guy with the knife.

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

Chris Crawford, a UT senior studying philosophy, said he worked with White at volunteer organization Real Role Models, a place where students would do service and provide mentorship.

Lindsey Clark said she saw the suspect get tackled by police as he was running toward the entrance of Jester Hall, a complex of dormitories and classrooms. Carter said he didn't know what specifically was ailing White, "but he was obviously suffering from a particular issue".

Edmonton Oilers Defeat Sharks, Advance to Second Round
If Patrick Marleau had the sole decision, he would stick around and sign a contract extension with the San Jose Sharks. Talbot saved them at least once, when the Oilers turned the puck over in front of him while they were on a power play.

Many students took to social media after the attack, complaining that it took too long for university and campus police to notify them of the danger on campus. Immediately after that attack, she said, he stabbed another person. "There is now no ongoing threat on campus".

White was an active member of a student group of African American health professionals.

White, a biology major in the College of Natural Science, was removed from the school's student directory soon after the attack.

Brandon Frausto, a friend of White from Killeen High School, said the incident was unexpected.

"He was just walking around with a knife, so no one even noticed when he hit that first guy, I guess, because no one was screaming".

Arredondo later saw what looked like CPR being performed on someone outside the front door of the gym.

The paramedic was in critical but stable condition, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported, while the gunman, who was not identified, was later found dead in a home with another body. The others were taken to the hospital with potentially serious wounds.

Brown, the student killed in the attack, graduated in 2016 from Graham High School.

The attacker did not resist when officers ordered him to the ground at gunpoint, Carter said.

Jennifer Herber, a spokeswoman for the Austin Police Department, said a suspect is in custody.
