An emergency management deputy briefed reporters.

He had multiple patients involved in a stabbing. Currently we have 20 students that have been injured, four of which have been flown by medical helicopter." The suspected attacker is said to be a student. He's being questioned by police and detectives. The attack took place in several classrooms and hallways, the official said. It's unclear how many of the injured were stabbed by the suspect and how many were hurt while scrambling to get away.
