Three students at the University of Hartford were on Sunday rehearsing a scene from a film in which someone gets stabbed, as part of a class project, when something went horribly wrong. The Hartford Courant reported that police have charged one student with stabbing two others (a true stabbing, not a fake one for the rehearsal). The students who were stabbed were hospitalized. The student who reportedly did the stabbing is facing two counts of attempted murder.
The university on Sunday released this statement: "The University of Hartford campus community is deeply saddened by the serious incident involving the assault of two students on campus this afternoon. The injured students were immediately transported to area hospitals for treatment and law enforcement secured campus. A third student was located off-campus and has been taken into police custody. Our thoughts are with these students and their families during this difficult time. While there is no ongoing threat to campus, we recognize that this isolated incident is frightening and unsettling. The university will provide counseling services to members of our campus community in need of support or assistance."
