"We're not sure exactly why he came to school with a knife", Chief Perry Beise said.

Sauk Rapids borders St. Cloud on the northern edge.

A 19-year-old former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, is accused of bringing an assault rifle to the school in February and killing 17 students and staff members. There are approximately 790 students enrolled at the elementary.

Close to 100 parents and students who have walked the halls of The Foundation School for Autism gathered for the school's first ever homecoming celebration. Pleasantview has students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. The weapon was a kitchen knife the boy brought to school.

"I was pretty shaken up. It was really shocking", said Nadine Feia, who has two kids who attend the school.

Interim Superintendent Bruce Watkins called the incident "unfortunate".

Watkins also sent a message home to district parents.

The incident occurred at about 7:15 a.m.as students were arriving at Pleasantview Elementary School in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. A Pleasantview primary-aged student entered the building and upon putting away his backpack, he pulled out a knife and began striking students with it.

Ambulances as well as armed police were seen at the school, local media sn.dk reports. All three male students were on their way to classes when they were slashed by their 8-year-old classmate. He said he didn't know if the boy had been bullied, or if he had mental health issues.

Watkins said the school made mental health counsellors available to students and staff. Classes went on as scheduled.
