Pittsburgh’s New FBI Leader Is Tested on Third Day with Mass Stabbing at High School

It was just Scott S. Smith’s third day as special agent in charge of the FBI’s Pittsburgh office when a student slashed and stabbed classmates in a hallway at Franklin Regional High School last week.

“It was a horrific incident,” Smith told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for a story. “Behind the scenes, though, there’s a lot of investigative activity, evidence collection, witness interviews that have to be done, and they have to be done then.”

Smith allotted 20 agents to the investigation, which includes interviews and evidence reconstruction.

“He was battle-tested in his very first week,” said U.S. attorney David Hickton, who was on the scene with Mr. Smith.

Smith is in charge of 145 FBI agents, in a addition to other support staff and local law enforcement.
