Pennsylvania's Governor Tom Corbett has issued a statement after the stabbing incident at Franklin Regional HS.

"I was shocked and saddened upon learning of the events that occurred this morning as students arrived at Franklin Regional High School. As a parent and grandparent, I can think of nothing more distressing than senseless violence against children. My heart and prayers go out to all the victims and their families."

"I have directed the Pennsylvania State Police to assist local law enforcement in its investigation in any way possible. Other state resources will be made available to the community, if needed. I assure the citizens of Murrysville that they have the full support of my administration."

A male sophomore described as "really shy"' went on a slashing and stabbing rampage Wednesday with two knives at a Murrysville, Pa., high school, injuring at least 19 students before he was subdued and handcuffed, police said.
