One person is dead and at least three others are injured after a man began stabbing people on University of Texas at Austin campus Monday afternoon.

According to UT Austin police, the suspect is in custody and there is "no longer an ongoing threat" to people on campus. In photos of the arrest posted on social media, the suspect is seen carrying a large, machete-like knife.



The UT stabbing took place shortly after a mentally unstable man shot a Dallas paramedic Monday morning. The paramedic remains in the hospital in critical condition.
