HOUSTON – The Lone Star College student who allegedly stabbed 14 people Tuesday was on a "killing spree" until his knife broke, according to a witness who said he spoke with him in a holding cell.

Dylan Quick, 20, was tackled by students and taken into custody shortly after the victims were stabbed on the Cy-Fair campus.

Quick later told investigators he had fantasized about stabbing people since he was 8 years old. He also said he had planned Tuesday's attack for some time, according to Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.

Just last week, Quick was featured in a student spotlight blog about how far he had come and "the battles he fought and won."

The KHOU 11 News I-Team dug up the blog called, "I came, I saw, I conquered."

The article about Quick, 20, said he was born deaf and received a cochlear implant at seven years old. The implant was visible as he was escorted into the Harris County Jail Tuesday afternoon.

Quick had a long association with Lone Star College and enrolled in the school libraries teen activities when he was 12, according to the blog. Quick’s mom enrolled him in the program to help him learn English. Quick was shy at first and didn’t’ want to participate, but eventually turned into a studious reader.

The blog reveals Quick had decided to pursue a career in accounting and would be transferring to the University of Houston if he received his associate degree from Lone Star College Cy-Fair.

He has a love for math and a love for reading with more than 1,000 books in his collection.

Quick planned to build and host an online international book club in the future, the blogger wrote.

Quick’s future now has taken a much different direction.
