At least 14 people were wounded in an apparent mass stabbing at Lone Star College's CyFair campus in Cypress, Texas, on Tuesday morning.

The suspect, a white male armed with what one witness described as an X-Acto knife, was detained, police said. The suspect, believed to be 21, was enrolled at the school.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said police received a 911 call at 11:12 a.m. local time reporting a white male "on the loose stabbing people."

The school was placed on lockdown.

"Seek shelter now," Lone Star's Twitter feed warned Tuesday afternoon. "If away, stay away."

The incident occurred near and around the school's Health Science Center and remains an active crime scene, Garcia said.

"Buildings are still being searched," he added.

Four victims were transported by helicopter with serious injuries "consistent with laceration," a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff's Office said. Two others were taken by ambulance to a local trauma center.

Two of those victims are in critical condition, he said. Four are in fair condition. Others victims treated for minor injuries and two refused treatment, Garcia said.

One witness told CNN that the suspect was hearing impaired.

An announcement was made over loud speakers warning students to seek shelter. "This is an emergency," the announcement said, according to KHOU-TV. "Everybody stay inside of your rooms. Do not leave your rooms."

An alert issued on the school's website indicated that "another suspect may possibly be at large." But Garcia said surveillance video reviewed by police indicated there was one "and only one" suspect.

Police would not confirm the exact weapon used by the suspect, but said no firearms were found at the scene.

The campus was evacuated, vice chancellor Randy Key told reporters, and the college will remain closed for the remainder of the day.

In January, three people were wounded in a shooting at Lone Star College's North Harris campus near Houston. More than 90,000 students attend classes across the Lone Star College system's six campuses.

It is a good thing that no one in the area had a legally registered hand gun. They would probably be in very serious trouble if they had shot the "suspect in custody" and lost their life savings and parents retirement paying legal fee's.

I guess someone should have called 911 faster.

No media coverage on this whats so ever and barely a squeal out of CapriceClassic.

Wonder why? If it was a gun it would be in the news for days and the squealing would be another story.

Why would anyone need a gun?
