This story was removed per request of the Alpine School District and Orem Police Department since this investigation is still ongoing and there was some confidential information contained in the article.

One important correction is an earlier version of this article says there was a sixth victim. However, the Orem Police Department clarified that there are only five victims — four who were stabbed and one with a head wound.

We apologize for the confusion and want to show our support for the Orem Police Department, Alpine School District and Mountain View High School as they work through this tragic event.

A version of this story will be made available after the investigation is complete.

    Please correct your story to read “he received staples to close the wound”
    Abrasions (scrapes) usually do not require wound closure, only cleaning and maybe a dressing. His scalp was split open by blunt trauma causing an open wound. Sorry for the technicality, as an ER nurse, proper description makes a difference.
