A suspended student at a Texas high school stabbed two of his classmates in an early morning attack on campus before fleeing the scene, police said Thursday.

Both victims were rushed to Hendrick Medical Center and their conditions are unknown.

Police said the attack appeared to be targeted and a result of a “previous altercation” between at least one of the victims and the suspect, Tomlin said.

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

All three of the male students involved in the incident are minors and are "around 16" years old, police said.
