1 dead, 3 hurt in University of Texas stabbings

Law enforcement officers secure the scene after a fatal stabbing attack on the University of Texas campus Monday May 1 2017

Two of the victims have since been released from the hospital, UT-Austin President Greg Fenves said in an email to the UT community Monday night.

Rumors of another stabbing incident taking place on UT Austin campus, after the attack that ended with three stabbed and one dead, are "not credible" according to APD.

Fenves did not offer details on vandalism or threats mentioned in the letter, but Prichett told ABC News that she was aware of "a couple" of alleged threats on campus.

Then, she heard people scream.

"It is pretty terrifying", Prichett said. 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.

One sorority that wished to remain anonymous told KVUE reporters that they'd sent out an email asking all the members to check in, and once all were confirmed safe - updated parents with that information. "I've never seen like horror-stricken faces like that in my life, it was just insane, it was hectic". He drew his weapon, ordered White to get on the ground and took him into custody. She said there was a general sense of unease among her friends. "You wouldn't have seen it unless you were paying attention". "There was another guy who had lacerations to his head or neck, and a police officer was holding his head".

The site of the attack was along a tree-covered avenue that is a major thoroughfare for students walking to and from class. One student was hospitalized in that attack.

The University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center has extended its hours in the wake of the stabbing attack on campus Monday and will be open until 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. He graduated from high school in the Central Texas city of Killeen in 2014. In his Twitter account, he described himself as a "future doctor", and was tweeting Bible verses from the Gospel of John just a day before the attack.

The crowded area of students was soon cleared as UT police and Austin police homicide detectives placed barriers marking off the entire intersection. Group President Melody Adindu said White was passionate about his work and was "very interactive and easygoing".

He regularly volunteered at Real Role Models, a student organization that volunteered at elementary school.

Former high school classmate Angela Bonilla, who now attends UT, told the Herald that "no one expected him to do this". It wasn't immediately known whether the attacker knew the victims.

"This breaks my heart to have to announce this".

Gov. Greg Abbott issued a statement after the campus attack and the shooting of a Dallas Fire & Rescue paramedic.

"Our prayers go out to all those affected by today's tragic events", he said in an emailed statement.
