Suspect in Lone Star College slashing spree fantasized about killing people, planned attack, police say

A student who told police he'd fantasized since elementary school about stabbing people to death was charged Tuesday with carrying out a building-to-building attack at a Texas community college that wounded at least 14 people, many of whom were stabbed in the face and neck, authorities said.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that 20-year-old Dylan Quick used a razor-type knife, and that he told investigators he'd been planning the attack at the suburban Houston campus for some time.

Quick was scheduled to appear in front of a judge late Tuesday night, but is considered a mental health patient and was not immediately bought to court to hear charges against him, KTRK, an ABC affiliate reported.
