4 Injured in UC Merced Stabbing; Attacker Killed

Four were wounded in a stabbing Wednesday morning at the University of California, Merced, according to NBC News. Police shot and killed the attacker.

UC Merced tweeted that of the four who were injured, two were students, one was a staff member and one was a vendor. All are expected to recover.

The attacker was a student at UC Merced, but CNN reports that the school has not released any additional information about him.

The campus was on lockdown and classes were canceled for the day. Classes will also be canceled tomorrow.

“I can tell you that we’re really shocked and saddened by this,” Lorena Anderson, a school spokeswoman, told the Los Angeles Times. “We’re doing everything we can to contact family and parents to make sure everyone here is safe and secure.”
