UT Officials Update On Stabbing Incident

Page described the four victims as UT students: three white males and one Asian male, all between the ages of 20 and 21. "I thought they were joking with each other, until I turned around and saw a guy ... holding a small machete-type thing".

"You could see and hear people running and screaming: 'There he is!'" before he was tackled by officers. He has been identified as 21-year-old Kendrex J. White, reports KCEN. The attack had about 25 witnesses, and the investigation is still ongoing, Carter said.

One person died at the scene; the others were being treated at Brackenridge Hospital, Carter said.

"We are once again going to 12 hour shifts to assure our community that UTPD is for them", said Carter. The district said in a statement that Brown "was an inspiration to everyone around him". "Harrison was an inspiration to everyone around him. He pulls the knife out without saying anything and turns around to stab some guy in the back of the neck", said the witness, who asked not to be identified.

Chris Crawford, a UT senior studying philosophy, said he worked with White at volunteer organization Real Role Models, a place where students would do service and provide mentorship.

"It was an incredibly hard time for them - unimaginable", he said.

It was unknown whether White, a UT biology major, knew the victims.

"Counselors and youth ministers will be at the high school tomorrow and available for our students".

White also shared a large number of biblical quotes on his Twitter account in the lead up to the attack.

But Springer also said White had missed almost a month of Spanish class, which was unusual, and returned saying he'd been in an accident because of a seizure.

"It was unusual", he said.

Carter said White was confronted and arrested within two minutes of the first call to police and the situation was immediately under control.

Kendrex White was arrested at the scene of the attack.


Two of the students injured have been released from the hospital, university officials said. Meanwhile, rumors of a bomb threat at one building came just as reports of a stabbing in West Campus fueled social media hysteria. No others were injured.

A 17-year-old homeless teen was charged with capital murder three days after Weiser's body was found.

"They are suffering, and we all must be there for them", Fenves said.

The university is no longer under any threat, the stabbing was isolated, and any incidents that occurred around the university are not related, Carter said. "I have been briefed by the Department of Public Safety on both incidents, and have also talked to University of Texas at Austin President Greg Fenves".

Police are urging people to avoid the area.

Law enforcement officers secure the scene after a fatal stabbing attack on the University of Texas campus Monday, May, 1, 2017.
