Knife Attack

Twenty people have been injured - some with life-threatening wounds - in a stabbing spree Wednesday morning at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. 
Murrysville police chief Thomas Seefeld confirmed a 16-year-old male student is in custody. He said an assistant principal wrestled the suspect to the ground after he ran through multiple classrooms and hallways brandishing two knives. 
Four of the victims were airlifted to hospital and three were being operated on, according to Westmoreland County emergency management and hospital officials. Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville and five other hospitals including Allegheny General Hospital and UPMC-Presby were treating patients.

The majority of victims are 14-17 year old students though one adult - a male security guard - suffered a stomach wound, Seefeld confirmed.
I wonder why the school's zero tolerance policy didn't stop the attacker?
