Default Fatal stabbing on UT Austin campus

1 dead, 3 injured in stabbing at UT campus; suspect in custody, police say
Quote:
One person is dead and three others have been taken to the hospital after a reported stabbing attack on the University of Texas campus Monday afternoon, according to Austin-Travis County EMS.

University police said they have a suspect in custody and that the public is not in any immediate threat. Officials are asking the public to avoid the area near 21st Street and Speedway.

Around 1:46 p.m. emergency officials first responded to the stabbing near Gregory Gym at 2101 Speedway.

EMS reported that they have taken three people with potentially serious injuries to University Medical Center Brackenridge.

University officials said they have canceled classes and events on campus for the rest of Monday because the investigation into the attack has limited access to buildings.

About a dozen Austin police units swarmed responded to provide back up and support university police, which is leading the response to the stabbing, said spokeswoman Amanda Cole.

In response to the incident, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said “our prayers go out to all those affected.”

He said he has "have offered all available state resources" to assist in any effort.

In a separate incident, the Belo Center for New Media was briefly evacuated after a reported bomb threat. But university police said the building was not under lockdown and is open. “There is no immediate threat at this time,” they said.

A sign had been draped across the building’s sky bridge with the words “Tuition Pays for Bombs” before it was taken down.

Last week, university police alerted the campus about a drive-by shooting near Dean Keeton and San Jacinto streets on Thursday. No one was injured, and police said neither the shooter or his target were affiliated with the university.

The incident also comes about 13 months after the slaying of Haruka Weiser, 18, a freshman theater and dance student from Portland, Ore., whose body was found April 5, 2016, on the bank of Waller Creek near the UT alumni center. She had been strangled and sexually assaulted, authorities say.

Weiser's death sparked an outcry from UT parents concerned for the safety of their children, and a review and overhaul of campus safety protocols. The Texas Department of Public Safety concluded that UT needed more police officers, more lighting and more video surveillance. UT was also urged to keep homeless people and others with no particular reason to be on campus away, and to make sure people who aren't supposed to be in UT buildings can't get in.

Some recommendations led to quick changes, such as the removal of dense vegetation to improve visibility in walking areas along Waller Creek, where Weiser was killed. Lighting has been improved on Speedway, a major north-south pedestrian route that runs through campus. Door locks to College of Fine Arts buildings have been installed that only allow people with UT IDs to come in at certain times of the day.

But even though the university is making progress, the size of the campus represents a challenge. Fully implementing the DPS recommendations and upgrading the university's 164 buildings will take months, if not years. Officials have said there is some debate as to the usefulness of outfitting larger areas of the campus with closed circuit security cameras.

And the UT Police Department, which had increased its authorized force from 67 cops to 99 in recent years, is still working to reach its full strength due to lengthy hiring procedures and training.

Sounds like it was just a student going to the gym. When he say "He was walking into Greg" he's referring to Gregory Gymnasium across the street from the McCombs business school building, not that the dude was bumping into a person named Greg.

Why are all those accounts of past incidents in that article? They are related only in that they were on the same campus. Why did they leave out Charles Whitman?

I feel like the guy with the gun could've at least yelled "stop or I'll shoot." At least he had the common sense to be aware of his surroundings and avoid firing. Still scary af and sad someone had to die.

So this is just one of those "haha ban knives lol" threads, right?

I'm confused though. The NRA told me as long as someone has a gun then there can be no crime. Are we sure this isn't a false flag attack?

Better than your post.

So the student who got his gun said he chased him briefly. Did that mean actually chase, or just follow. The difference being did the knife guy know he was being chased I guess.

Affidavit: UT stabbing suspect did not remember attack
Quote:
AUSTIN - An arrest affidavit obtained by KVUE Wednesday shows that Kendrex White -- the man accused of stabbing multiple University of Texas at Austin students on campus Monday -- told police he did not remember the attack following his arrest.

Over 35 witnesses "who either observed (White) stabbing a victim or observed him walking with a knife in his hand" were interviewed by police, the affidavit said.

When police interviewed a friend of Harrison Brown's -- the student who died after being stabbed -- he said he saw someone make a punching motion toward Brown's chest near Gregory Gymnasium. The friend then told police that Brown approached him and told him he had been stabbed.

Other witnesses also mentioned in the affidavit that they saw a man stab Brown along with three others.

When police responded to the scene, the affidavit said they observed White walking toward the Jester Dormitory with a knife in his hand. An officer said he told White to drop the knife after he saw him raise it toward students who were also walking toward the dormitory. The officer said White ignored his commands before he walked into Jester. After giving commands a second time, the affidavit said White dropped the knife and lied down on the ground just inside the entrance to Jester.

According to the affidavit, police read White his Miranda rights and he agreed to speak. When he was asked if he knew why he was there, White said, "Yes, accusations of pushing someone down and I think using a bladed weapon," the affidavit said.

When officers asked if he was hearing voices in his head, he said "that his mind told him to, 'tell the truth and withhold any action that he did because it really didn't happen,'" the affidavit said.

White allegedly stopped the interview and said, "If I did something I don't remember then I want to be told," according to the affidavit.

White has been charged with murder, a first-degree felony. He is being held on a $1 million bond.

I don't really give a damn why. Too bad someone didn't drill him on the spot, so we don't have to hear about him for the next few years, and the families of the deceased can have some closure.

I thought it was mentioned in that article but I guess it was a different one I read earlier. Apparently he has a history of mental illness and had previously been involuntarily committed to a health facility at some point.

My friends would have at a minimum sharpied a dildo onto your face.

Reworking the irrigation system at our Riverside apartment in Austin so when the sprinklers turned on at 5am it showered everyone who passed out in the living room was probably the biggest pass out prank we pulled in Austin. To this day I don't know how we didn't get kicked out of that place.
