Craziness in the Gym

Not sure if everyone has heard about this, but Tuesday morning in the gym was crazy. I get up and train early every morning. I was in the far back of the gym. I hear a woman screaming up near the front of the gym. It is in a huge 24 hours fitness, so the back is far from the front. I make my way to the front. When I get there, 3 other members, (guys who I know) have a guy pinned down to the ground. Other members are whisking away a woman who had just been attacked by the man. She was on an elliptical machine and he randomly attacked her stabbing her several times with a Phillips head screwdriver. She had no idea who he was.
Very proud of the guys who jumped in. They saved this woman's life. From what I am hearing, she will be fine. (at least physically)
The down side is I don't think we have heard the end of this story. The guy who did this was evidently wandering around the gym with a giant suitcase, talking to himself and staring people down. One member called the police 30 min prior to this suspicious guy. The Irving police came to investigate and were told by the kid at the front desk that everything was fine. The police left. 20 min later the incident occurs.
