A man behind the stabbing of four people, including an Asian man and his young son, has been arrested and charged.
The incident occurred at Sam’s Club in Midland, Texas on Saturday at around 7:30 p.m., when Gomez stabbed two children and two adults, including a Burmese man identified as Bawi Cung Nung and his son, Robert. An employee of the store was also hurt during the confrontation.
Jose Gomez, the 19-year-old suspect, confessed his crimes to investigators and was later charged with three counts of attempted capital murder and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to CBS7.
All victims were taken to Midland Memorial Hospital where two of the victims were in critical condition, KVIA reported.
Gomez was disarmed by an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent who was shopping at the store at the time of the attack.
“The quick action of our agent ended this shocking situation and clearly saved multiple lives,” Border Patrol Big Bend Sector’s, Chief Matthew Hudak said.
Three of the four victims have reportedly been released from the hospital while one, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, is expected to be released soon.
Gomez’s motives behind the attack remains unclear. His bond has not been set.
