Over the last month, the 14-year-old girl who went on a stabbing spree at her high school used social media to express desires to commit a school shooting and stabbing, to commit suicide, and on the day of the shooting, she posted a goodbye note announcing an upcoming stabbing at the school. She also shared the Luka Magnotta murder video.
On Tuesday morning, eight people were injured during a mass school stabbing at Dunbarton High School. The grade 9 student, who’s identity remains protected, was armed with 2 knives and attacked at random. Some staff members came to the rescue and tackled her down. She was arrested. The motive is unclear.
The students and staff described the ordeal as “terrifying”. Classes resumed the next day and counselling has been made available to the students.
