Five Wounded In Mass Stabbing at UC Merced

Five individuals were wounded Wednesday morning in a mass stabbing incident on the University of California Merced campus.

The alleged attacker was shot and killed by campus police.

The earliest reports indicated five students were stabbed. At 9:17 am UC Merced tweeted: “5 students stabbed; 2 sent out via medical helicopter; 3 treated on campus. All conscious.”

Then, at 11:20 a.m. UC Merced tweeted: “CORRECTION: Not all 5 victims are students. Awaiting further information.”

According to CNN, the victims were stabbed “in front of the Classroom and Office Building.” The school was quickly placed on lockdown, followed by a cancellation of classes for the day.

KTLA reports that the identity of the attacker has not been released and a motive for the stabbings is not yet known.
