Bad news coming out of Georgia Tech.

From the AJC:

A man believed to be a former grad student stabbed a post doctoral fellow with a sword at Georgia Tech this afternoon, a school spokesman said.

The attack happened at the Weber [Space, Science and Technology] Building shortly before 1:20 p.m. The victim was taken to Grady Hospital.

A police officer was slightly hurt while arresting the attacker, the school spokesman said.

WSB-TV reports the suspect used a samurai sword. More details as they become available.
