(CBS) HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - The Lone Star College student who allegedly injured 14 people Tuesday in a stabbing spree on the school's CyFair campus in the Houston area has been identified as 20-year-old Dylan Quick, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.

Quick was reportedly tackled by students and taken into custody on the campus shortly after the incident took place. He has not officially been charged, according to the station.

Just last week, Quick was featured in a blog about how far he had come and "the battles he fought and won," the station reported.

The blog said Quick was born deaf and received a cochlear implant at 7 years old. The implant was visible as he was escorted into the Harris County Jail Tuesday afternoon.

Quick had a long association with Lone Star College and enrolled in the school library's teen activities when he was 12, according to the blog. Quick's mother reportedly enrolled him in the program to help him learn English.

The blog reveals Quick had decided to pursue a career in accounting and would be transferring to the University of Houston if he received his associate degree from Lone Star College CyFair.

Quick reportedly planned to build and host an online international book club in the future, according to the blog

According to Sheriff Adrian Garcia of the Harris County Sheriff's Office, police received a call at 11:12 a.m. Tuesday reporting a white male stabbing people. Police were dispatched to the scene shortly after.

Out of the 14 people injured, two refused treatment, two are listed in critical condition and four are listed in fair condition, Garcia confirmed Tuesday afternoon. He said they sustained various injuries.
