Austin police say they were called to the scene to assist UT police just before 1:50 p.m. at 2101 Speedway, which is near Gregory Gym. UTPD Chief of Police David Carter says an officer arrived at the location in less than two minutes. When the officer arrived, he saw a suspect walking away from one of the stabbing victims.
The suspect, identified as 21-year-old Kendrex J. White, was armed with a “Bowie-style” hunting knife, police say. When the officer ordered the suspect to the ground, he complied and was placed into custody inside the Jester West building. Social media posts show the suspect had a large knife holder attached to his waist.
The Graham Independent School District in north Texas says the victim who died was 19-year-old Harrison Brown. In a Facebook post, the district said Brown graduated in 2016 and that he was “an inspiration to everyone around him.”
The UT directory shows White is a junior majoring in Biology.
