“Our thoughts and prayers remain with these students, their families, friends, and the entire Warrior community during this time of unimaginable loss,” McLaughlin added. He also said that on Wednesday, there will be mental health counselors on hand at the school and other sites throughout the district for both students and staff.
According to the Simi Valley Police Department, the driver of the car was wanted for allegedly stabbing a Walmart clerk in the 200 block of Cochran Street. Around 2:42 p.m., a stabbing occurred, and the assailant escaped before police arrived.
According to Barrios, the man also stabbed a second victim inside the Walmart. They were both transferred to a hospital.
After the stabbing, the man traveled to Camarillo where he got into a “domestic dispute” with family members without anybody getting hurt, according to Barrios. The collision took place afterwards.
