Governor Tom Corbett issued the following statement regarding the multiple stabbing incident this morning at Franklin Regional High School, Westmoreland County:

“I was shocked and saddened upon learning of the events that occurred this morning as students arrived at Franklin Regional High School.  As a parent and grandparent, I can think of nothing more distressing than senseless violence against children. My heart and prayers go out to all the victims and their families.”
