(CBS) HOUSTON - Dylan Andrew Quick, the 20-year-old student charged Tuesday night with carrying out a building-to-building attack with a razor-type knife at a Texas community college that wounded at least 14 people, has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Quick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault. The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Quick told them he fantasized about stabbing people to death since elementary school and planned the attack for some time.

The sheriff's office said that Quick began the attack at about 11:20 a.m. Tuesday at the Lone Star Community College System in Cypress. It remains unclear how long the attack lasted, but Lone Star college officials said they locked down the campus shortly after 11:30 a.m.

Quick did not appear in court to hear the charges read against him because he was ordered to be evaluated by mental health officials, the paper reports.

Authorities on Tuesday were seen leaving Quick's parents' home with two brown paper bags, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.

Out of the 14 people injured in the incident, six victims were taken to Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday the hospital confirmed that all of the patients previously listed in critical condition are now in good condition and one patient was discharged after treatment, the station reports.

North Cypress Medical Center confirmed they also received six patients Tuesday, but all were treated and released.

The campus resumed normal operations on Wednesday after cancelling classes and other activities following Tuesday's attack.
