USA Today / Associated Press, November 27, 2013
A nurse died and four people were injured Tuesday in a stabbing attack at an East Texas medical complex. A 22-year-old man has been charged with murder in the stabbings, which happened around 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Ambulatory Surgical Center of Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview. Gregg County Jail booking records show Kyron Rayshawn Templeton of Longview is also accused of four counts of aggravated assault. His bond has been set at $2.6 million. Jail records didn't list an attorney for Templeton. Officer Kristie Brian, a Longview police spokeswoman, said it's not yet clear what led to the attack.
