Classes were back in session Wednesday at Lone Star Community College in Texas. That's only one day after a student apparently went on a rampage and stabbed several other kids at the school.
 
Back at home West Virginia University Police Chief, Bob Roberts said Wednesdays' events demonstrate how those things can happen even without someone having a gun. He said that's why their plan to deal with any situation involving a person with a weapon is very similar.
 
Investigators believe 20-year-old Dylan Quick attacked a handful of people with a razor utility knife.
 
Roberts said that it doesn't matter what type of weapon a potential attacker might have. He said they have to be treated as if they're dangerous. He mentioned to 5 News that even a pencil can kill someone if it's used the right way.
 
Roberts warned folks to call police if they see anyone strange. He said it's important for folks to consider their own safety and not get involved with the situation.
 
"If you can get away, get away," Roberts said. "If you can't get away then you should shelter in place. You should also turn your cell phone off, or anything that would attract you to a would be attacker."
