The 20-year-old, Dylan Quick, accused of stabbing 14 of his classmates, told police officers that he’d been planning his actions and had fantasies of stabbing people to death since his childhood.
“According to the statement the suspect voluntarily gave investigators, he has had fantasies of stabbing people to death since he was in elementary school. He also indicated that he has been planning this incident for some time,” the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
The crazy student who looks like Carrot Top reportedly went on a building-to-building stabbing attack at Lone Star Community College, wounding 14 people, with four of them taken to hospital.
The violence took place at about 11:20am at the rear of the Health Sciences Building on the Cy-Fair campus on Barker Cypress Road, reports ABC News.
While most students were running away from the crazy teen, one of them tried to stop him, chasing the criminal down and then subduing the alleged stabber until police arrived.
That man is Steven Maida. That’s his real name, anyway, but he’s better known as @cheesin365, whose Instagram page gained popularity after he posted a picture of the suspect shortly after he was tackled to the ground.
Student Maida said, “I didn’t see him hit anybody, I just saw girl walk out with hole in her cheek. One girl had a hole in her neck, and this other guy had cuts on the back of the neck, and the other guy had a slice on the neck.”
James, a student at the school, told reporters that he saw the man, dressed in black, running out of the building, and he gave chase. When tackled, the suspect reportedly said, ‘I give up, I give up.’
“One kid grabbed him by the backpack, the other grabbed him by the arm, and the kid just said he gave up, and we just sat on him until the cops came,” Maida said.
“It was definitely an adrenalin rush. I wouldn’t want to hear a girl die, especially if I could have done something about it.”
By late afternoon, police had identified the suspect and arrived at his house. Investigators had been at the home for hours waiting for the paperwork. Quick’s parents were believed to be inside but they never showed their faces.
According to Quick’s neighbors, the suspect is hearing impaired but wears an implant. Just last week, he gave next door neighbor Michael Lincoln a hand.
“Took down the branch and said that’s what neighbors are for. Took the branch down for me himself. Nice kid, just quiet, real quick kid — doesn’t have any friends,” Lincoln said.
A young man who was temporarily detained with Quick on Tuesday revealed that Quick was hoping to kill people but the knife broke.
“There were pieces of blade in at least one victim, broken blade pieces in the area where the cutting occurred, and the handle to a razor-type knife was found in a backpack that Quick was carrying when he was arrested,” the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
Police is currently investigating the case and reviewing video evidence as there had been reports of a second suspect. However, investigators believe the suspect acted alone and they ended the search for any other suspects.
