MURRYSVILLE, Pennsylvania (ABC News) - Authorities continue trying to figure out why 16-year-old Alex Hribal stabbed fellow students inside his Pennsylvania High School. Meanwhile, several of his victims remain in intensive care.

The victims of Wednesday's violent attack are starting to speak out.

Franklin Regional High School sophomore Brett Hurt was stabbed in the back.
He said his friend saved his life by applying pressure to his wound.

Police are now focused on a motive....what made Alex Hribal snap?

His family says he's a good student who's never been in trouble and has no history of psychiatric problems.

Hribal's lawyer told ABC news this morning the 16-year-old is confused, scared and depressed.

I think he understands what he did. I don't think he understands gravity of
what he did.

There's been speculation in this community that bullying may have been a factor, but police haven't determined that.

Franklin Regional High School students describe Hribal as quiet...and say the 16-year-old sophomore kept to himself.

Witnesses to the attack say Hribal showed no emotion as he calmly stabbed his schoolmates.

It was terrifying, his face was blank; see rage in his eyes,

Officials are aiming to get Franklin Regional High School re-opened on Monday, so students can get back to normal. But it will be a challenging and emotional return.
