HOUSTON - Attorneys in probable cause court overnight said they have a videotaped confession from the suspect accused of stabbing several classmates at a Lone Star College campus.

In the confession, 20-year-old Dylan Quick reportedly told detectives Tuesday s attack was part of a long-held fantasy he had since his childhood.

In a videotaped confession, he admitted he stabbed the complainants with an X-Acto knife and a scapula [sic]because of his fantasy to kill people, said a prosecutor. Apparently there are more than six complainants, and a bloody knife tip was removed from the chest from one of the complainants.

The charges against Quick were read in court, but he wasn t there due to concerns abouthis mental health. Quick has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault.

The student is accused of going on a stabbing spree at Lone Star College s Cy-Fair campus, injuring at least 14 people.

The sheriff's officesaid Quick told investigators he'd had fantasies about stabbing people to death since he was in elementary school, and he indicated he'd been planning the attack for some time. At an afternoon press conference Wednesday, Sheriff Adrian Garcia said investigators were looking into the possibility that Quick may have discussed his plans in an online chatroom.

Authoritieswere seen leaving Quick's parents' home with two brown paper bags.

Out of the 14 people injured, six were sent to a Cypress-areahospital for treatment and later released. Six otherswere more seriously injuredand were sent to the Texas Medical Center, some by helicopter. All, but two, of those patients have been released.
