A student killed a school teacher at the Instituto Joan Fuster in Barcelona, Spain on Monday. Reports indicate the student was thirteen years old; police said he was under fourteen.

The student reportedly had a crossbow and knife; however police have not yet confirmed the cause of death. Two other teachers and two students received non-life-threatening injuries in the attack. One teacher was treated for minor injuries on scene, while the other three injured were treated at Barcelona hospitals.

Police said the motive for the attack has not been established. The attack happened on the sixteenth anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre in the United States.

According to Spanish law, the boy, because he is under fourteen years of age, cannot be held criminally responsible. As a result he cannot be jailed, but can be institutionalized in a mental health facility and was sent for psychiatric examinations following the attack.
