Classes have resumed at a Pittsburgh-area high school one week after authorities say a student stabbed or slashed 21 others and a security guard while rampaging through a hallway with two kitchen knives.

Before school began, students gathered Wednesday morning on the football field behind Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville to pray and to support one another.

Students who drove to school - or were driven on buses or by their parents - were greeted by well-wishers from a nearby church who were holding signs of support saying things like "Courage" and "It's a new day."

The suspect, 16-year-old Alex Hribal is being held in a juvenile facility but is charged as an adult with aggravated assault and attempted homicide in the April 9 stabbings. Four students remain hospitalized.
