STABBING VICTIM ON THE MEND

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. - Doctors say a 17-year-old student who was among the most critically injured in a high school stabbing rampage outside Pittsburgh continues to improve after another surgery.

The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center said yesterday that the surgery went well. It didn't mention the student by name, but said he's still listed in critical condition. Spokesman Rick Pietzak said it was the student's fourth and last scheduled surgery.

Four students are still in area hospitals following Wednesday's attack at Franklin Regional High School.

Alex Hribal, 17, faces four counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault in the attack. The school will resume classes Wednesday and teachers return to work today.
