One male student was in custody Wednesday after at least 20 people, most of them students, were stabbed in classrooms and the hallway of a high school in Murrysville, Pa., near Pittsburgh.

Four of the most seriously injured victims were taken from the Franklin Regional High school by helicopter, KDKA-TV reports. The station said emergency officials indicated that one of the victims was in his 60s, apparently a staff member of teacher.

Dr. Chris Kaufmann, director of the trauma center at Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, told WPXI-TV that at least 7 of the victims have “life-threatening” injuries.

Doctors say a female student saved the life of a stabbed classmate by applying pressure until medics arrived, WTAE-TV reports.
