10 a.m. ET: Dylan Quick, the 20-year-old student accused of a stabbing spree at Lone Star College's CyFair campus near Houston, is scheduled to appear in court.

Multiple people were stabbed Tuesday morning at a Houston-area college, CNN affiliates reported -- an incident that has prompted the school to urge students to take shelter.

At least 12 people and as many as 14 have been injured in the incident at Lone Star College's CyFair campus in Cypress, according to CNN affiliates KHOU, KTRK and KPRC, who are citing authorities.

Authorities have detained one suspect, and another might be at large, the school said in a statement.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office confirmed that one suspect has been detained. Earlier, the sheriff's office said at least one person was stabbed at the college.

Details about what led to the incident weren't immediately released.

"Stay away from the area. Seek shelter in a secure location until the incident is resolved," the school posted on its website.

Tuesday's incident comes more than two months after three people were wounded in a shooting at a different Lone Star College campus -- the North Harris campus in Houston.
