Earlier this morning, a male sophomore student at Franklin Regional Senior High School, located in the Pittsburgh-area, went on a stabbing spree with a knife, injuring at least 20 students. The attacker is in custody, but as of now, a motive is unknown. Here’s more from CNN:
Victims were stabbed in their torso, abdomen, chest and back areas, and two people were sent to surgery immediately after arriving, [Dr. Chris Kaufmann] said. Those two patients had low blood pressure, he said. A third was being prepared for surgery Wednesday morning, and the rest were being evaluated to see whether surgery was necessary, he said. (Via)

The only acceptable time to take a selfie? Right after you’ve saved a bunch of lives. Anyway, the poor kid’s already being inundated with press requests, leading to this appropriate comment.
