UPDATE: Suspect In School Stabbings Charged As Adult

Posted: Updated:

EXPORT, Pa. - Police have identified and charged a 16-year-old boy accused of stabbing and slashing 21 fellow students and a security guard at a Pennsylvania high school.
    
Authorities say Alex Hribal is being charged as an adult following the Wednesday morning attack in Murrysville, 15 miles east of Pittsburgh. Witnesses say the boy tackled a freshman and stabbed him in the belly, before getting up and running wildly down a hall, slashing other students. They say he had a blank expression on his face before an assistant principal tackled him.
    
He appeared before a judge in Export, about 5 miles from the Murrysville high school. Hribal was charged with four counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault. He was shackled by his hands and feet and was dressed in a hospital gown.
    
The teenager's family lives in a two-story home with an attached garage in a nice subdivision of large, newer homes there. No one answered the door or phone calls.
    
The FBI was at the house Wednesday night.
    
Neighbors say the teenager is the younger of the family's two boys.
