Alex Hribal

 Franklin Regional High School - Murrysville, Pennsylvania.

Alex Hribal, a 16 year old high school student at Franklin High, walked into school on April 9th, 2014, armed with two knives to commit a very rare incident - a school stabbing.

Alex stated that he identified with Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the Columbine High School Shooters (1999) and that he originally wanted to commit his rampage on April 20th, but later changed it to April 9th, Eric Harris’s birthday, because school was cancelled on April 20th. He began planning his attack on September 22, 2013.

Alex injured 22 students, including himself. Alex has stated that he was depressed and had suicidal thoughts in the fifth grade. He stated those feelings came back once he started attending Franklin High.

Originally trialed as an adult, his case is still being evaluated as on 2016.
