    Kxan — One person is dead and multiple others are injured after a stabbing on the University of Texas at Austin campus Monday afternoon.

    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. Austin-Travis County EMS says one person died and three more were injured.

    UT police say one person is in custody and there is no ongoing threat to the campus. Police say the person they apprehended stabbed two people and assaulted one other. Social media posts show the suspect had a large knife holder attached to his waist.

    Witnesses tell KXAN they saw one man, who appeared to be a student, grab a “Bowie knife” and stab a person in the neck and stomach.
