Spain, 14-year-old student stabs five people in a school near Cadiz

Fear in a high school in Andalusia, near Cadiz, where a 14-year-old student was arrested for stabbing three teachers and two students in a school in Jerez de la Frontera, inflicting wounds of “variable severity”. The attack occurred in the Elena García Armada public school in the San Josè Obrero neighborhood. The attacker, a 14-year-old student, had two knives with him and attacked three teachers and two students, who have already been transferred to different medical centers. All suffered injuries of “varying severity”, according to police sources, who specified that the reasons for the attack are not yet known.

The reconstruction

According to the testimony of a student in El Pais, the young man arrived in class at 8.20am, took out two knives and attacked one of the students from behind, shouting “I’ll kill you”. The rest of the class began to run away in panic while the biology teacher tried to dissuade him, asking him to stop, but she was hit in the eye. At that point, the 14-year-old apparently went to another class and attempted to attack other people, injuring the teacher present. In the meantime, a phone call alerted the police who intervened and arrested the young man.
