MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (April 16, 2014) Classes resumed Wednesday at a Pittsburgh-area high school one week after a student armed with two kitchen knives stabbed or slashed 21 classmates and a security guard while rampaging through a hallway.
Before school began, students gathered Wednesday morning on the football field behind Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pa., to pray and to support one another.
Students who drove to school or were driven on buses or by their parents were greeted by well-wishers from a nearby church who were holding signs of support saying things like "Courage" and "It's a new day."
The suspect, Alex Hribal, 16, remains in a juvenile facility.
He’s been charged as an adult with aggravated assault and attempted homicide in the April 9 stabbings.
Four students remain hospitalized.
