14 injured in knife attack on Lone Star College campus, suspect arrested

Over 12 people were stabbed Tuesday on the campus of Lone Star Community College campus in Cypress, Texas, after a male suspect reportedly used a small knife, ran from building to building and randomly attacked individuals along the way.

Harris Country Sheriff Adrian Garcia said in a press conference Tuesday afternoon that the suspect, described as a young white male, has been taken into custody.

Garcia said officers responded to the campus after receiving a call about a male “on the loose” stabbing people. He said it was not immediately clear what type of weapon was used.

“Some of the details in the call slip did indicate that students or faculty were actively responding to work to subdue this individual,” Garcia said, describing the man as being about 21 years old and enrolled at the college. “So we’re proud of those folks, but we’re glad no one else is injured any more severely than they are.”

    If someone had been carrying, this could have been stopped sooner.

    • 7papa7

      Now they can outlaw knives. You are absolutely correct, all it would have taken is one person to stop this but then the mad Marxist couldn’t go off on this and divert the conversation away from the trashed economy.

      • fliteking

        Dam Democrats are out of control!

        • cimiron

          they have always been out of control, where the hell have you been

          • fliteking

            Oh I’ve been around, just venting the obvious.

        • 7papa7

          Shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. If they can elect a hard core Marxist how could you expect any control from them.

    • douber1

      then the police would have thanked the person and confiscated his weapon
      stupid laws


    Uh Oh…
    Knife control legislation on the horizon….
    Another reason for Barry Boy to run up ridiculous bills with Air Force 1 and his entourage on the campaign trail…

    • Alfred Ferguson

      He (Barry Boy) doesn’t need a ‘reason’ to spend this nation into a third-world freak show. He is doing just that, central to his agenda. Why? Third-world dictatorship. A dictatorial third-world freak show. And who shall be dictator?

      Aw shucks, you guessed.

  • Chuck

    Glad that it was only a small knife and not military style assault knife… and glad this nut didn’t have a gun.

    • douber1

      maybe he did but they were confiscated

  • kds

    One gun, one bullet, PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!

    • David

      What’s the old saw, “Never bring a knife to a gun battle?”

  • pduffy

    Won’t be a peep about this in the mainstream media.

    • don m.

      Ready for a shock ???? NBC had it on the nightly news along with the bugging of McConnell’s office

      • James Star

        Oh My Goodness, a reverse Watergate! President should resign immediately!

  • USAgent

    First I would like to offer condolences to the family and victims,

    Also I think that all knives and any sharp objects should be looked into by the Obama Admin – only those that are over a half inch long, Sheesh! And an exploratory committee by congress needs to be established as to why people need knives, Secondary the ATF should be renamed to the ATKF maybe use ATTACK for its logo. Then I think that any chef should be looked at as a hostile person – I mean have you ever been to a hibachi, those guys must be angry to hack up Veggies like that. Where are the tree huggers when you need them? Hiding behind the bar stools I bet. And only government employees should be allowed to run with sharpened knives.

    • ONTIME

      I will be carrying a 2 1/2″ pocket knife on the aircraft the coming week, just like I used to do years ago…I never even thought of it as weapon until the security stuff made a big deal of it..I will be armed legally and placid.

    • william C

      I have 2 12 inch chefs knives, 2 carving knives, 2 paring knives among others. I must be some kind of desperado. I am a danger to this country,not to just chickens, fish and beef. Put me away! I am a carnivore with a rapacious appetite for meat! Heaven help us all.

  • Henry

    Next will be knife control so hide your knifes!! This is why gun control will never work! If you are a criminal
    you can kill with a bat, hammer or a knife. You do not need a gun to kill. The problem is called freedom of the people control, that’s what they really want. Freedom of the people is what gun control is all about.


    Hopefully the students that subdued this moron, took his knife away and used it on him or maybe left him with some stitchable souvenirs for memory recall…

  • Jim

    We must ban assault knives!!!

    • flyovercindy

      Especially high capacity blades, like this one must have been…

    • Ter

      You are very close, Jim. What we should do is ban ALL knives. And put a large tax on knife sharpening tools. It is what queen oboma will probably do.

      • 7papa7

        Don’t forget we also need to outlaw spoons and forks.

        • James Star

          Please dont give the morons any ideas! They are too stupid for words!

          • Hawkeye3939

            Any sharp, heavy, or pointed object must be under government control and supervision.

          • TexasOlTimer

            Add rocks and baseball bats to your list.

          • 7papa7

            And what you say is a compliment to them.

        • ken

          oh Let not forget napkins! Cant leave them out..

          • TexasOlTimer

            Along with plates! Can’t have those thrown at anyone!

          • 7papa7

            That’s true you could force them down their throats and choke them to death.

    • DRAGA


      • Ron

        people are brain washed!


    what’s reasonable for you?

  • unreal

    Oh S#it there go the knife’s !!!

  • dad666

    Let me guess —- this occurred in a gun free zone??? Shame that nobody was carrying and able to take him down.

  • gdoggerz

    I wonder if he was screaming allah auk-bar the whole time?

  • The Old Man

    Here is an example of someone that probably couldn’t get his hands on a gun. So, he used a knife.
    However if someone was carrying he would have been taken down a lot quicker.
    I am glad no one was killed.

  • Average Joe

    Well at least he obeyed the gun laws. To bad someone else did’nt

  • Average Joe

    Get rid of anything with A sharp point. Including pencils. Wright out your report with A crayon

    • UnCL3

      If we ban pens, what will the rape victims be left with (besides peeing themselves) to ward off a rapist?

  • William Mdcannold Jr.

    TV news has reported comment by student(s) that this character carried around a stuffed monkey doll (curious George?) If true, it is likely that he was a common fixture around the school and regarded as
    odd -but surely not a candidate to perpetrate violent attack. Just another example of reason to look into the mental issues – rather than violate the Constitutional rights of an entire citizenry.

  • russellsmith4

    Ban people

  • william C

    a S&W, Glock, Beretta, Colt or Walther PPK would have stopped that before number 3 victim.

  • Benjamin Fox

    If concealed carry was allowed on campus, this idiot would be dead now and no danger to anyone, stop making victim’s of honest citizens by disarming us. What happened Dec. 29, 1890? Ask those their, oops, they are dead but only after being disarmed by the government, It was Wounded Knee and a shame on our country.

  • CK

    This is now the second such attack….one in china and now in the US! What is going on here? We need to limit how many steak knives are in your drawer at home. Anyone caught with more that 1.5 steak knives will be put into jail. There will be a buy back of knives at your local fire departments, as they can use them when they cook their three meals a day at the fire house!

  • Foxmuldar

    I bet the campus was a Gun Free Zone.

  • Love911

    Great…. Now all the Libs will want to Ban knives…..

  • Ralph

    I know what would prevent this…Let’s make a law to micro stamp an ID on all knives, register them and make a background check for anyone that wants to have a knife. That will stop the criminals. Remember criminals are stopped by laws and not force.

    If you believe the above, then you would accept Peter Pan as a real person..

  • auhunter

    See guns aren’t the only culprits in mass violence sprees. Next comes legislation banning ownership of knives with a blade longer than 3 inches, finger nail files, and combs with a pick handle on them. As many of us have been saying all along, it’s not the weapon, it’s the idiot holding it. 5 will get you 10 this guy is on or coming off psychotropic drugs.

    • UnCL3

      AND votes DemoncRat

  • $5164204

    Expect Liberals now to demand the registration of knives, with background check and mandatory classes before use along with locked storage when not in use… Think that is Funny, look to England who now is dealing with Increased knife crimes and their “Solutions” for this new problem… It’s always blamed on the tool not the one using it…

  • Rockstar (ret)

    This story was not even mentioned on KSTP here in St.Paul,MN. Big suprise. I e-mailed KSTP and told them I was not suprised. This story does not fit the Obama gun ban template. How predictable.

  • SuperDave2

    Maybe they’ll have to make a “Knife Free Zone”.

  • GB.

    Make it a law that all knives have no longer than a two inch blade, and have background checks. I don’t like to be cut,

  • rpr0174

    I also would like to offer condolences to the families and their friends of the victims..

  • rpr0174

    Their goes our rights to us knives now. Now Congress will have to come up with a new law to have knife owners undergo background checks, no more concealed knives, we are losing the right to use butter and carving knifes next.

  • texasconstitutionista

    Everybody get ready for the knife ban

  • wminaz

    Any truth to the rumor that Mayor Bloomberg is going to insist that restaurants cut up your steak before they serve it so the general public will have no reason to be trusted with knives? The restaurant employees will have to go to training class in knife wielding. They will have a knife buy back program as well.

    • douber1

      i hope they stay by my side so that i dont hurt myself or anybody else
      if somebody liiks at me funny i will cut them up and spit them out

    • James Star

      We all joke about this, but may just happen. I never thought this gun control would go this far either, but man was I wrong!

  • OldDocBen

    Oh, My God!!! Congress HAS to do something! Knives need to be banned! Confiscate every steak knife in America. My God! There otta be a law!

  • Rick Zimmermann

    WAIT MY FELLOW AMERICANS: RUSH as fast as You can to all Lame Stream Media a d DEMAND KNIFE CONTROL AND BANS especially on that dreaded of all the Exacto knife ,Call Your Politicians, Get Diane Feinstein to Demand that the State of California,and Bloomberg along with Schumer immediately lobby all,in order to get these Bans set in Stone with the King in Washington. “JUST IMAGINE IF ONE LAWFUL STUDENT OR TEACHER HAD A GUN.???? WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN SAVED ?? MAYBE ALL 14 STUDENTS.!!!!

  • John W.H

    Obama, shotgun joe, Feinstein, and Bloomberg now believe the weapon used was a large bayonet attached to a full auto assault weapon,

    • douber1

      derssed in camo all for his 5 min of fame

  • mesaman

    Contact your congressman immediately. It is imperative that knives be included in the national background check bills being prepared as we speak. I suggest a ban on all knives over 10 inches, no more than seven blades in a single knife, no military-style knives (bayonets, etc), no concealed knives, registration of all in-home knives, including butcher to steak and paring knives, felony charges for anyone trying to sell a knife without going through the background check, no more knife shows with open sales, and, in the City of New York (aka Blooming idiotville) no knives of 18 ounces, avoir du pois.

    • UnCL3

      Time for another “National discussion” about knife violence…

  • gmhunt4

    The government needs to confiscate ALL knives that not plastic

  • $5905143

    Pastic forks, knives, & spoons.. any package containing thirty or more should be banned.. I love this s**t,,

  • rikker45

    better initiate a waiting period and background checks before purchasing knives.

  • David

    Don’t be silly. Don’t out-law knives,,,, only out-law knives that can cut or stab more than one person! Kina like the one shot guns that the dumbocrats want us to carry!

  • nobodysfool

    I recommend that all knives are confiscated immediately! Clearly knives are the cause of mass mayhem. First of all, though, all knives must be registered, and knife owners must submit to psychological exams.

  • MarkEntry

    Want to bet the MSM will, once again, say, “It was a right wing nut, & we have to stop them. Case Closed!”? But, I’d wager this radical is another Leftists extremeist, & register Democrat. Just read the commentary below & you’ll get the truth about who’s pushing firearm confiscation:

    Commentary from Paul R. Beane on KFYO radio on 1/24/2013:
    Good afternoon, I’m Paul R. Beane and I’m your right wing gun nut.
    You know me and fellow gun owners are responsible for all the carnage in our
    streets and our schools. Never mind that Ted Kennedy’s car has killed more
    people than my entire collection of firearms. Most of which I have owned
    since childhood when I saved my pennies and nickels in order to purchase
    them and each and everyone is in perfect working order. It is the
    responsible gun owners of today that is being blamed for all the shootings.
    Obama calls us the right wing gun nuts, clinging to our guns and to our
    But lets take a little closer look. The Fort Hood shooter, a Muslim, and a
    registered Democrat. The Virginia Tech shooter, he wrote hate mail to George
    Bush and his staff and was a registered Democrat. Aurora Colorado shooter,
    he was a staff worker on the Obama campaign and took part in Occupy Wall
    Street. He was a progressive liberal and guess what? A registered Democrat.
    The Newtown, Conn shooter hated Christians and was a registered Democrat.
    The Columbine high school shooters were too young to vote, but both of their
    families were progressive liberals and registered Democrats.
    And one more thing, not a single one of these killers were members of the
    National Rifle Association. So I have got it figured out how to make this
    country much safer; leave the guns alone and lock up all the Democrats.
    I’m Paul R. Beane and that’s the way I see it

    • UnCL3


  • James Star

    ok, was that an “assault” knife? How many blades did it have? I know people getting hurt or killed is not funny. But neither is this stupid gun control that solves nothing! They going to ban knives now?

  • UnCL3

    Why the hell is this f/ck not dead?
    I’m predicting DemoncRat voter registration.
    Time to ban knives of all kinds, or at least a National registration law.

  • $5905143

    No Swiss Army knife with thirty blades or more…. DUH…………

  • littlepat

    Now we will have knife control. Please register all your knives so we can confiscate them later.

  • armydadtexas

    Time to circle b. HO with a bunch of children and guilt America into Registering their knives. No more knife shows. A thousand pages of federal crap before you can buy a pocket knife or even a Bread knife. After all the horrible knife was used to hurt 14 people in a “no knife zone”. Had someone been their who had a concealed weapon, the perp would have been stopped, before he had the opportunity to harm multiple STUDENTS. Let us see if B.HO and his minions go into their usual knee jerk mode demanding knife grabs. Get it.

  • AppraisHer

    I guess we’ll find out that he’s another democrat nutcase, just like the last 3. All the LSM tell us is that they had a gun, were crazy and killed people, never mentioning they were democrats. In Chicago the LSM tallies shooting deaths each day, bet they’re all democrats too. The best way to keep guns out of the hands of nutcases is to check and see how they voted in the last election-if they’re democrats, just refuse them a license. The streets will be a lot safer and they can leave us law abiding people alone.

  • Richard Brue

    When are we going to start across the board background checks for all knife purchases. If you sale or give to a friend, make sure you get a background check before you do or it’s jail time. If you lose or get it stolen, make sure to report it with-in 24 hours or spend 5 years in a Fed. Pen.

  • cimiron

    we must ban knives, good lord ban anything and everything that is sharp, or can kill including your hands, this is getting so ridiculas, only evil people will be able to commit murder what a shame we can’t blame everyting and everyone

  • CalPaul

    And now the libs will be clamoring for our knives . . . .

  • servant1jkb

    ok, THAT DOES IT! It is time for “Knife Registration and Licensing,” of ALL sharp edged blades of any length, period! Plus it must be make a criminal act to posses any blade in the hands of any under the age of OH, say 110 yrs old without a license. We demand Government’s action on this, by passing at least another 10,000 laws in order for all gun owners not to feel slighted.
    But of course, we all know, and “THEY” all know that where there is no enforcement, there is no law!
    Chicago has one of the most anti-gun stands in the nation, yet they have more murders, yes

    But that’s not their point is it? They want to be seen “DOING SOMETHING”! Even it means nothing!!
    But that’s what Career Politicians are all about, right? BUYING VOTES!
