EACS Reacts to Pennsylvania Mass Stabbing

The stabbing attack comes just one day after officials with the East Allen County School District wrapped up a safety training course. The training is provided by a company called the Alice Training Institute. The name stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evaluate.
At least 20 people were injured when a student allegedly attacked his fellow classmates with two knives in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. The attack happened shortly after 7 a.m. before classes were scheduled to start at Franklin Sr. High School.

During the attack, someone pulled the school's fire alarm, which officials say helped evacuate the building. The suspect, a 16 year-old, was handcuffed by a resource officer and later taken into police custody.
