    Police are trying to determine how a man who stabbed himself got into an elementary school in Passaic. 

    A custodian at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School 10 called police after finding the 37-year-old on the floor bleeding around 5:25 a.m. Wednesday. The man's name has not been released, but NJ.com reports he has no connection to the school.

    The man is undergoing surgery for life-threatening injuries.
