911 Calls Released in Utah High School Stabbing

Stabbing happened Tuesday, leaving 5 injured

Police say the suspect in the stabbing of five students at a Utah high school campus, was in his first year at the campus in Orem after being home-schooled.

They said Tuesday the suspect had stabbed himself in the neck and was cornered by school workers until a police officer assigned to Mountain View High School subdued him with a Taser shot.

The five victims involved are all expected to survive. Two of the most seriously injured were in critical but stable condition, according to hospital officials.

In a 911 recording released Wednesday, a male caller says, “He’s stabbing people! He’s stabbing people!”

Police say the victims ran for their lives, covered in blood from stab wounds to their necks and torso.

An investigation is underway into the motive behind the stabbings.
