“We can confirm that of the three people who were taken to the hospital with stab wounds, one was the suspect. We can also confirm that the three individuals were members of the school. Beyond these details, we are not able to provide further specifics at this time out of respect for privacy and investigative considerations,” the regional police said in a statement.
