La Vanguardia, April 21, 2015

A deadly attack by a student in a Barcelona high school was the lead story throughout the Spanish press on Tuesday. The headline on the city's leading daily La Vanguardia reads: “Shock After The Murder Of A Teacher By The Hand Of A Child.”

The newspaper reports that the 13-year-old student injured his Spanish teacher with a crossbow, before killing a 35-year old substitute teacher with a knife. He then went into other classrooms and stabbed numerous students, four of whom have been hospitalized.

According to several sources, a few days before Monday's attack the unnamed boy had declared that he wanted to kill all his teachers and then commit suicide. As the suspect is under 14 years old, he cannot be arrested or tried as a criminal, though in extreme cases youths can be held in specialized centers.

ABOUT THE SOURCE: La Vanguardia is a leading daily based in Barcelona, published in both Spanish and Catalan. It was founded in 1881.
