GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A tentative trial date is set for a young man who was 16 years old when he stabbed 20 fellow students and a security guard at his Pennsylvania high school apparently in remembrance of the Columbine massacre.

According to court documents, the trial for Alex Hribal (RY’-buhl) is scheduled for June 20 and a status hearing is planned for early next month.

The 18-old-year Murrysville man is charged as an adult with 21 counts each of attempted homicide and aggravated assault in the April 2014 stabbing rampage at Franklin Regional High School, about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh.

No students died. Four were critically hurt.

Defense attorney Patrick Thomassey has acknowledged that Hribal stabbed the other students using two kitchen knives. Thomassey couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Hribal is being held without bail.
