  CORAOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) -- A student has been awarded a medal for rendering first aid to students injured in a stabbing rampage at a suburban Pittsburgh high school.

   Franklin Regional High School senior Zachary Fleischauer was awarded an Army Achievement Medal on Sunday at a ceremony in Coraopolis. Fleischauer joined the Army Reserve last year.

   He was in the school library the morning of April 9 when he heard screams, followed by the fire alarm.

   Officials says Fleischauer assisted four students, applying pressure and taping students' wounds.

   Lt. Col. John Dowling called Fleischauer's performance outstanding.

   Twenty students and a security guard were injured in the spree. The last of the injured students was released from the hospital on Saturday. A 16-year-old boy has been charged in the attack.
