The Austin American Statesman reports that police received the phone call about a man stabbing individuals near Gregory gym at 1:30. When police arrived they identified White, who was wielding a “large, bowie-style hunting knife,” according to Carter. Officers ordered White to drop the knife and get on the ground, which White did immediately.
