Investigators search for clues in deadly UT campus attack

Investigators search for clues in deadly UT campus attack

He said the stabbings occurred within a one-block area.

Former classmate Angela Bonilla described White as "the sweetest guy", while others remembered him similarly.

White, the suspect in a hunting knife attack that left one student dead and three others wounded at the University of Texas at Austin, may have been "suffering from mental health issues", UT Austin Police Chief David Carter said Tuesday.

When she first heard the screaming, Rachel Prichett thought her fellow University of Texas students were just joking around. White was being questioned by police and charges were likely to come later.

Freshman Jude John told reporters he was eating at a dining hall and walked outside to see a large crowd and a man being escorted out in handcuffs by two Austin police officers. They did not clarify which of those victims was deceased. One person died at the scene; the others were being treated at Brackenridge Hospital, Carter said. The victims of the violent attack were not identified but described as three white males and one Asian male.

White was taken into custody nearly immediately, UTPD Chief David Carter said.

The UT Police Department and the Austin Police Department can not confirm the rumors that members of Greek fraternities were being targeted in the attack. White complied with an order to get down on the ground and was taken into custody without incident. "I've never seen like horror-stricken faces like that in my life, it was just insane, it was hectic".




"He was a really smart guy in high school, he was always nice, had plenty of friends, and was in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program".

At the university, student Ray Arredondo said he was walking to his vehicle when a mass of students near the gym started running. "Another student had lacerations to their head and was getting help from police", said student Ray Arredondo. White graduated from high school in the Central Texas city of Killeen in 2014.

Within minutes Austin Police say the suspect was apprehended.

Some people said buildings had been evacuated, but the Moody College of Communication tweeted that the Belo building was not under lockdown.

The Austin Police Department responded to reports of multiple people stabbed Monday afternoon at the University of Texas. "It breaks my heart that any of our students are touched by tragedy".

However, it is impossible to overlook the fact that he has been accused of targeting fraternity members only a few weeks after frat houses at the University of Texas at Austin were vandalized by an anonymous Antifa group.

Four people were attacked. The victims' wounds were not life-threatening, authorities said. He was arrested and charged with assault.
