MURRYSVILLE, PA -

One person is in custody after a stabbing at a Franklin Regional High School near Pittsburgh.

Dan Stevens, the spokesman for Westmoreland County emergency management, said 20-students have been injured, four seriously.  Police have a suspect in custody and he is believed to be a 16-year-old student but no word on a motive.

A Forbes Hospital spokesperson says 7 victims have been taken to their hospital, 1 victim has been flown to Allegheny General Hospital, and 2 taken to UPMC-Presby. While some of the wounds are considered life threatening, all are expected to survive.

Hospital officials say patients range from 15-to-60-years old.

Apparently the attack started around 7:15 a.m. in various classrooms.

Early reports indicate a student ran through classrooms stabbing or puncturing students with a knife or some sharp object.

CBS News reports the principal and security officer helped subdue the attacker. Also, someone pulled the fire alarm during the chaos which helped alert students and staff to get out of the school.

Franklin Regional High School posted this statement on their website.

A critical incident has occurred at the high school. All elementary schools are canceled, 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.
