UPDATE :

(CNN) -- Dylan Quick, the 20-year-old suspect in stabbings Tuesday at Lone Star College, told investigators after his arrest that "he has had fantasies of stabbing people to death since he was in elementary school," the Harris County, Texas, Sheriff's Office said. He added that he'd been planning Tuesday's attack "for some time," according to the sheriff's office.


 

UPDATE (2:25pm): Authorities say they have a 21 year old student in custody as the suspect in the stabbing incident at Lone Star College on Tuesday morning.

They've also decreased the report of 15 injured to 14. Two of those are in critical condition at a Harris County hospital.

Officials say they are not sure what weapon was used in the stabbing.

Authorities first learned about the stabbings at a Lone Star College campus after receiving a 911 call at 11:12 a.m. on Tuesday describing a "male on the loose stabbing people," Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Adrian Garcia said.
 


UPDATE (2:13pm): Students and staff at Lone Star College are being allowed to leave campus after stabbings at the school's CyFair campus in the Houston area, Marianna Sviland, a teacher at the college, told CNN at 2 p.m.


UPDATE: Multiple people were injured in a stabbing incident Tuesday morning at a Houston-area college, prompting officials to urge students to take shelter, the school said.

At least 15 people  injured in the incident at Lone Star College's CyFair campus in Cypress, according to CNN affiliates KHOU, KTRK and KPRC, who are citing authorities.

Authorities have detained one suspect, and another might be at large, the school said in a statement.
"There are multiple injuries and conflicting reports on the total number of victims and severity of injuries," the school's statement said. "We can confirm that several people have been transported to area hospitals."

The Harris County Sheriff's Office confirmed that one suspect has been detained. Earlier, the sheriff's office said at least one person was stabbed at the college.

Details about what led to the incident weren't immediately released.

"Stay away from the area. Seek shelter in a secure location until the incident is resolved," the school posted on its website.

Tuesday's incident comes more than two months after three people were wounded in a shooting at a different Lone Star College campus -- the North Harris campus in Houston.


ORIGINAL: At least nine people were stabbed at a northwest Harris County college on Tuesday, according to paramedics.

At around 11:30 a.m., Cy-Fair volunteer firefighters were called out to a stabbing at Lone Star College in the 9000 block of Barker Cypress Road.

Life Flight officials are on standby.

College officials have not released any details about the incident, including whether the campus was placed on lockdown.

"Lone-Star College", another institution of the student loan rip-off that we all pay for.

All right, Dianne Feinstein, what do we do about this one? No butter knives!

Well guys in the UK they HAVE banned people from carrying knives. Yes even boy scout knifes and they are producing legislation to ban table knifes over 4 inches in length. Yes the knifes you use in kitchens to eat. Their logic is some one might get mad and stab someone with the eating utensils.

And the latest research shows the UK has close to the same murder rate (they classify them differently so as to hide it.) And their theft rate is astronomical!

It's too bad some of the victims or other students didn't have guns so that they could have stopped this criminal.

I think we need to band all knives and sharp objects.

Impossible!

Maybe they need a 'no knife' sign and that will stop such attacks!
