MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Students plan to gather in prayer and in support of one another on the football field of a Pittsburgh-area high school where classes were scheduled to resume a week after a mass stabbing.

A county official says students wanted to meet before classes resumed Wednesday morning at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.

Dan Stevens, spokesman for the Westmoreland County Emergency Management Agency, says school and public safety officials have been working toward getting things back to normal since 21 students and a security guard were stabbed at the school just before classes began a week ago.

Sixteen-year-old suspect Alex Hribal is being held in a juvenile facility but is charged as an adult with aggravated assault and attempted homicide in the stabbings. Four students remain hospitalized.
