Blood donations go above the goal


MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – An effort to replenish blood bank supplies after a mass stabbing at a western Pennsylvania high school is far exceeding its target.

KDKA-TV reported ( that the event at the Murrysville Community Center on Saturday drew dozens of donors.

The station says some of the injured required multiple transfusions.

The blood drive collected much more than its goal of 75 units.

Sixteen-year-old Alex Hribal is accused of attempted homicide and other charges after allegedly stabbing 21 fellow students and a security guard shortly before the start of school April 9.
