5,6 stabbed at Franklin Regional High this morning

MURRYSVILLE, Westmoreland County — One person is in custody after emergency officials reported five or six people were stabbed at Franklin Regional High School.
Dan Stevens, the spokesman for Westmoreland County emergency management, says the suspect is in custody at Franklin Regional in Murrysville. That’s about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the suspect and the victims are students, adults, or a mix of both. But Stevens says it does not appear any of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries.
Reports are that a person ran through the school slashing or puncturing students with a knife or other sharp object.
School and Murrysville police did not immediately return calls for comment.
Parents have been notified and may pick up their children at the school.
It was not immediately clear what time the incidents occurred.
