ABILENE, Texas (AP) — A recently suspended Texas high school student stabbed two of his classmates Thursday morning before fleeing campus, officials said.

Police arrested the student about 30 minutes after the 8 a.m. attack at Abilene High School, police spokesman Rick Tomlin told KTXS-TV.

Medics took both victims to a hospital in ambulances. Their condition was unknown. Tomlin said all three students are male and “around 16” but declined to identify them because they are minors.

The attack seems to have been targeted, he said. At least one of the victims had a “previous altercation” with the attacker, Tomlin said, without giving details.

“He showed up here this morning, apparently, directly targeting the two victims,” he said.

Tomlin said it is too soon to say what charges the attacker will face. He could not describe the knife used.

The attacker had been suspended from the school in Abilene, a city of about 123,00 0 people 180 miles (290 kilometers) west of Dallas, said school district spokesman Lance Fleming.

Fleming said classes resumed following the attack and that extra police will be patrolling campus.
