8 Students Injured in Ind. Knife Attack

By TOM COYNE, Associated Press Writer

VALPARAISO, Ind. - A high school student wielding two knives slashed eight schoolmates Wednesday, authorities said. The injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

The student who committed the attack before class was in custody and Valparaiso High School was placed on lockdown, police spokesman Michael Grennes said.

Grennes said the attack happened around 8 a.m. in a Spanish classroom at the school about 20 miles southeast of Gary.

"The kid, after he stabbed them, he ran out of the room and a bunch of teachers tackled him," sophomore Clark Hogan said. "I saw the lady kick the knife down the hallway. She kicked it against the wall."
