MIDLAND, Texas -- A man who allegedly stabbed four people, including two children, at a Midland Sam's Club was charged with attempted capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, officials said Sunday.

Jose Gomez, 19, was arrested following the stabbings that happened around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. As of Sunday afternoon, no bond had been set.

Authorities said Gomez was disarmed by an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent who was shopping at the time of the attack inside the store.

“The quick action of our agent ended this shocking situation and clearly saved multiple lives,” said the Border Patrol's Big Bend Sector Chief Matthew Hudak.

According to KOSA-TV, the four victims included two adults and two children; one of the adults was a Sam's Club employee. All were hospitalized at Midland Memorial Hospital, with two of the victims listed in critical condition.

Midland police were still trying to determine a motive for the stabbing attack.

  1. Move along folks. Nothing to see here. This doesn’t fit the leftist gun grab narrative. The crazy perp was not white and no gun was used. This perp must be from El Paso. Where knife sticking comes first.
