Several students were stabbed at a Pennsylvania high school early Wednesday, authorities said.
As many as 10 students have possibly been injured, CBS Pittsburgh reported. At least five to six of those were stabbed. The suspect, who has not been identified yet, is in custody.
Police and paramedics are currently on the scene in Murrysville, which is about 18 miles east of Pittsburgh.
Mothers and fathers were seen rushing to the high school. Some were directed to the town’s middle school to be reunited with their children from the high school, according to WTAE-TV.
Others were told that their children were taken to the hospital. At least one victim was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
The scene is reportedly secure and currently on lockdown.
The school district posted the following statement on its website:
"A critical incident has occurred at the high school. All elementary schools are cancelled, the middle school and high school students are secure. Additional information will be released as soon as possible. Please keep our campus clear of traffic."

So, I must "bank it" once again. I had the TV on so I saw when it broke. The fact that it happened during a fire DRILL -- typically totally random -- is problematic. Bank the fact that it was reported during the news that the school was having a fire drill. This item of interest appears to have been scrubbed.
Ah, now they are revising. Someone pulled the fire-alarm. I could be whistling in the graveyard, as they say. And probably am.
Just there you have it. More deadly violence in yet another familiar setting.
