1 dead, multiple people stabbed on University of Texas campus

Emergency responders say one person is dead and three others have been taken to a hospital with "potentially serious injuries" after a stabbing attack on the University of Texas campus.

Police say a 21-year-old student was taken into custody for the stabbings. University Police Chief David Carter identified the suspect as Kendrex J. White, who was armed with a hunting knife.

Cater says the attacker did not resist when officers ordered him to the ground at gunpoint.

Police say all the stabbings occurred within a one-block area. There was no immediate word about a possible motive.

Student Rachel Prichett says she was standing in line at a food truck outside a gym when she saw a man with a large knife stab the person standing behind her.

Another student, Ray Arredondo, says he was walking to his car when a mass of students near the gym started running.

The University of Texas is blocks from downtown Austin and the Texas capitol building and is one of the nation's largest universities.
