The stabbing occurred at Dyke Industries, wholesale building material supplier, which is about four miles from Florida State University, according to CNN. The suspect is in custody and five people are in the hospital following the attack. It is not yet known if the suspect is or was an employee at the business.
The hospital first reported that six people had been stabbed, but corrected the number in a recent statement.
