CENTERVILLE, Texas (AP) — The search continues for a Texas inmate who was serving a life sentence for murder.
Gonzalo Lopez escaped Thursday from a transport bus after stabbing the driver, authorities said.
The driver's injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Officials say there were 16 prisoners on the bus at the time of the stabbing, but no others escaped.
The incident happened in Leon County, a rural area between Dallas and Houston.
Classes were canceled Friday in the nearby Centerville Independent School District as a precaution.
Lopez was convicted of killing a man along the Texas-Mexico border in 2006.
