I'm shocked I tell you--shocked!--to learn the crazed student was NOT a physics major! Chalk up one for the accountants this time. An accountant with a talking sock monkey puppet. Nothing weird about that, is there?

It's time we had a national conversation on X-acto knives. If you’re an American who wants to do something to prevent more families from knowing the immeasurable anguish that these families here have known, then we have to act. Background checks for all X-acto knife owners. RolleyesRolleyesRolleyesRolleyesSad

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas— Twelve people were rushed to area hospitals after an attack on the campus of [regionally accredited] Lone Star College Cy-Fair in northwest Harris County. Two other people were treated for minor wounds at the scene in the 9900 block of Barker Cypress.

Witnesses said a suspect ran down a hallway randomly stabbing students in the Health and Science Center.

"Male on the loose, stabbing people," was the call the sheriff's department received at 11:12 a.m. Tuesday.

Melody Vinton was leaving her chemistry class when the attacker ran past her. She saw him stabbing people, one after another, always aiming for the neck or face.

"I turned around and there was just blood. Just blood dripping down the stairs, all over the floor, all over everyone’s towels on their necks, just a lot of blood," Vinton said. "There’s no humanity in that. Just to see another human being do that was more traumatic than anything."

Vinton and other students in the science building rushed to help the victims until emergency crews arrived.

"They had a girl and she still had a blade sticking out of her cheek," said Michael Chalfan, another witness. "It was a box cutter to be exact, it was an X-acto knife."

More victims were reportedly stabbed in the technology building.

A male suspect was tackled on the campus and taken into custody.

He has been identified as 20-year-old Dylan Quick.

"Students and faculty were actively responding to subdue this individual," said Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia. "So we're proud of those folks."

Chalfan said Quick was running toward him when he was taken down.

"He had a sinister look on his face, kind of like a smile and a satisfaction grin after doing it," Chalfan said.

A former student said he was in the same holding room with Quick after he was arrested for trespassing. He said he asked Quick what he was doing and the suspect replied, "I was going on a killing spree until my blade broke."

Quick is a student at [regionally accredited] Lone Star College Cy-Fair. He was charged with three counts of aggravated assault Tuesday night. Bond was set at $100,000 for each count.

Six victims were taken to Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute — four by Life Flight helicopters and two by ambulance. Two of them were in critical condition and three were in good condition, at last check. One patient was discharged after treatment.

North Cypress Medical Center confirms that they received six patients, but all were treated and released.

Several parents rushed to the campus after hearing about the stabbings.

"Basically, I’m frantic. I’m scared out of my mind," said one mother whose daughter was locked in a classroom. "Even though she’s 21, she’s still my baby. As soon as she gets out, I’m going to give her a hug and kiss."

Another mother named Janice was relieved to hear from her son.

"They won’t allow them out of the classroom and they’ve assured them that no one can get into the classroom without a key," she said. "They are just sitting and waiting while the police collect the evidence and try to calm everyone else in the classroom."

"He was praying and he knew that the Lord was protecting him," said the student’s father.

Lone Star officials said the campus was immediately placed on lockdown and students were alerted by text message within minutes after the stabbings began.

"Seek shelter now. If away, stay away," the text said.

Loud speaker announcements were also used to warn everyone inside campus buildings.

Five children were inside a day care in the science building when the stabbings happened.

"As the incident occurred, the doors were locked and the lights were turned off. Children were kept calm and were under the protection of the caretakers," according to a statement from YMCA Director of Communications Taryn Baranowski . "All the kids are safe and have since been picked up by parents."

Lone Star students and employees were later allowed to leave the campus, which will remain closed for the rest of the day. Vehicles were searched at all of the exits.

The following Cy-Fair ISD schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution: Birkes; Holmsley; Rennell; Fiest; Postma; Jowell; Copeland; Aragon; and The Berry Center.

HOUSTON – The Lone Star College student who allegedly stabbed 14 people Tuesday was on a "killing spree" until his knife broke, according to a witness who said he spoke with him in a holding cell.

Dylan Quick, 20, was tackled by students and taken into custody shortly after the victims were stabbed on the Cy-Fair campus. He had not been charged at last check.

Quick was well-known on campus because he often carried a sock monkey puppet. Michael Chalfan said Quick would ask the puppet questions, then answer them. Chalfan said other students made fun of Quick and said he looked like the comedian Carrot Top.

Just last week, Quick was featured in a student spotlight blog about how far he had come and "the battles he fought and won."

The KHOU 11 News I-Team dug up the blog called, "I came, I saw, I conquered."

The article about Quick, 20, said he was born deaf and received a cochlear implant at seven years old. The implant was visible as he was escorted into the Harris County Jail Tuesday afternoon.

Quick had a long association with Lone Star College and enrolled in the school libraries teen activities when he was 12, according to the blog. Quick’s mom enrolled him in the program to help him learn English. Quick was shy at first and didn’t’ want to participate, but eventually turned into a studious reader.

The blog reveals Quick had decided to pursue a career in accounting and would be transferring to the [regionally accredited] University of Houston if he received his associate degree from [regionally accredited] Lone Star College Cy-Fair.

He has a love for math and a love for reading with more than 1,000 books in his collection.

Quick planned to build and host an online international book club in the future, the blogger wrote.

Quick’s future now has taken a much different direction.

At least there were no deaths. What a knucklehead! I wonder if he can get college credits in the psych ward.
Quote:"He had a sinister look on his face, kind of like a smile and a satisfaction grin after doing it," Chalfan said.

Once again, the ominous portent of a rampaging mental case's self-satisfied smirk.
