Multiple People Stabbed at Lone Star College

At least 14 people were injured, many of them stabbed, at a northwest Harris County college on Tuesday, according to paramedics. Investigators said they're searching for one of two suspects.

Cy-Fair volunteer firefighters said they were called out to a stabbing at Lone Star College, 9191 Barker Cypress Road, about 11:20 a.m. College officials said the incident happened at the health sciences building.

Paramedics said at least four of the victims were being to Memorial Hermann Hospital by helicopter. Eight people were transported by ambulances and two refused to go to a hospital, EMS officials said.

College officials have not said if the victims were students, staff or both.

Harris County sheriff's deputies said a suspect was taken into custody.

The college's business office said the Cy-Fair campus was locked down for a short time. Cars were being searched as people left the campus.

Four nearby Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District campuses were "secured" but not locked down. Those campuses were Birkes, Fiest, Jowell, Holmsey, Postma and Rennell elementary schools and Aragon Middle School.

The suspect has been identified as 21-year-old Dylan Quick.  Quick is in police custody but as of yet has not been charged.  Quick was working on an Associate's Degree and was planning on enrolling at the University of Houston upon graduation.
