The attacker entered a middle school in Mizhi County in the Shaanxi province at 18:10 local time, or 12:30 GMT.

The perpetrator is in custody and is under the age of 18, according to local reports.
The assailant is a local resident who had dropped out of the same school that he attacked.

Most the victims were female students.

All those injured have been sent to a hospital.

Pictures from the alleged crime scene on Chinese social media showed vicitms in a pool of blood on the ground.

Another shows a man, who is believed to be the suspect, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans being detained by police.

A statement published on the official Weibo account of Mizhi County’s public office said: “At 18:10 local time [12:30 GMT] on April 27, a suspect attacked students leaving the No. 3 middle school in Mizhi County [in Shaanxi province], hurting 19 students, with 7 of them dead from the injuries.

“The suspect is in custody. The injured students are being treated.”

This horrific attack comes two months after another stabbing spree at a shopping centre in Beijing, 700km away, that killed one woman and injured a futher 12 people.

Police said the 35-year-old suspect was quick to confess to the attack, which he carried out to “express his discontent”, they said.
