A young boy, 17 years old, went on a stabbing spree in Tokyo killing one, and injuring two others. He was not a student at the school and police are
not sure how he gained entrance. This caused a panic with the students who ran outside to safety.
TOKYO (AP) - A 17-year-old boy armed with a knife burst into a public elementary school in western Japan on Monday, stabbing one teacher to death and
slashing two other adults, police said.
A 52-year-old male teacher was declared dead after the assault while a 57-year-old female teacher was seriously injured with knife wounds in her
stomach, police said. The nutritionist, 45, was also being treated for injuries.
Kyodo News reported the attacker, 17, had graduated from the elementary school, but police were unable to confirm that report because he was refusing
to talk, Noda said.
