(OREM, Utah) — Utah police say a 16-year-old boy is in custody after five male students were stabbed at a high school.

Orem police Lt. Craig Martinez told reporters on Tuesday each victim was stabbed at least once at Mountain View High school and their conditions range from critical to fair.

Martinez says it isn’t yet clear if any of the victims’ injuries are life-threatening.

He says the stabbing happened in the gym area shortly before 8 a.m. in Orem, about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City.

Martinez says the teen was taken into custody by a school resource officer. The victims are being treated at local hospitals.

He says the school’s other students are safe after the suspect was caught.

The school was put on lockdown after the stabbing.
