(CNN) -- Authorities in Texas have identified the man who stabbed 14 people at Lone Star College's Cypress, Texas, campus on Tuesday.

Dylan Quick, 20, a student at the school, has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, said Donna Hawkins of the Harris County Prosecutor's Office.

Two of the victim's remain in critical condition, Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said.

What began as a typical Tuesday morning at Lone Star College in Cypress, Texas, and quickly became anything but.

“Everyone was out right in front of my classroom bleeding on the neck and the ears, this girl it seemed like she was bleeding close to her mouth,” said student Maya Khalil.

The campus immediately went into lockdown and ambulances and helicopters rushed the victims to nearby hospitals.

While law enforcement combed the area, the college posted a message on its website, warning people about the incident.

Tuesday’s incidents come more than two months after three people were wounding in a shooting at a different Lone Star College campus.

It’s unclear if the incidents are related.
