(Reuters) – The man blamed for killing one individual and injuring three others at the University of Texas at Austin has a background marked by psychological wellness issues and will be accused of murder, police said on Tuesday.
Kendrex White, an understudy at the college, seemed to act placidly amid the wounding binge on Monday, UT-Austin Police Chief David Carter told correspondents.
“This was not a connivance,” said Carter. “This was not a man that had a grudge against a specific gathering. We have strong grounds and motivation to trust that the individual was experiencing emotional well-being issues.”
UT-Austin President Gregory Fenves said two of the three individuals injured on Monday had been discharged from the healing center, and one was all the while being dealt with.
Fenves recognized the dead man as Harrison Brown, a first-year understudy at the college.
White, 21, has been automatically dedicated to a psychological wellness office outside Austin, Carter said.
Grounds police reacted to the principal call of the stabbings inside two minutes, Carter said.
The speculate kicked a female understudy as on the off chance that he seemed to be “showing her off the beaten path” and after that cut his first casualty, Brown, at around 1:45 p.m. neighborhood time (1815 GMT), he said. The three others were then assaulted, one while sitting at an outdoor table.
Every one of the four casualties were outside when they were focused on. The suspect, who was shaking a long blade, then entered a quarters building where he was captured by officers as he moved toward different understudies.
Web-based social networking reports saying the aggressor focused on individuals wearing apparel recognizing them as individuals from a club were unwarranted, Carter said.
None of the casualties was wearing such dress, he said.
Classes were hung on Tuesday in the wake of being scratched off on Monday after the stabbings.
