LONGVIEW, Texas – A second person has died of injuries suffered in a stabbing attack last month at a Texas hospital.
Harris Teel died early Thursday at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, where the Nov. 26 attack occurred. The 82-year-old Teel was at the hospital waiting to take his son home following a medical procedure when a man identified as 22-year-old Kyron Rayshawn Templeton stabbed five people.
Also killed was Gail Sandidge, a nurse who worked at the hospital for 35 years.
Templeton is in custody on murder and aggravated assault charges. Longview police spokeswoman Kristie Brian says investigators will confer with the Gregg County district attorney's office on additional charges that could be filed.
She says a motive for the attack is unclear. Templeton has refused to speak with investigators.
