Eight stabbed at Minnesota shopping centre



Physinews Reports: Eight people have been stabbed in an attack
at a shopping centre in the US state of
Minnesota.
Blair Anderson, police chief in the city of St
Cloud, said the attacker "made some
references to Allah" during the Saturday night
attack at the Crossroads Center.


He added: "We have confirmed that he asked
at least one person if they were Muslim
before he assaulted them".

No further details have been released about
the suspect, who was shot dead by an off-
duty officer from another police force.

Mr Anderson said police are still investigating
what happened, adding: "Whether that was a
terrorist attack or not, I'm not willing to say
that right now because we just don't know.

"We will be diligent and get to the bottom of
this.

"Starting tomorrow, things won't be the same
here."

He said the suspect, who was armed with a
knife and wearing a private security firm
uniform, was known to police in St Cloud but
only through minor driving offences.

They have "no reason to believe" anyone
else was involved in the attacks, which took
place in several parts of the shopping centre,
including corridors, businesses and common
areas.

Harley and Tama Exsted, of Isle, Minnesota,
had been in the shopping centre during the
attack and Harley told the St Cloud Times:
"All of a sudden I heard pop, pop, pop.
"I thought someone tipped over a shelf.


"All of a sudden these people started running
- I just saw everybody running our way."

Sydney Weires, who had been shopping with
two of her friends, told the St Cloud Times
they had heard a loud scream before a
security guard sprinted down the hallway,
yelling: "Call the cops! Call the cops!".

She said: "We saw these two guys - one was
bleeding from the side of his face."
The second man had blood on the back of
his shirt, she said.

McKenzie Laubach tweeted: "Currently in
hiding in the crossroads mall, hold your loved
ones close tonight".

The eight victims were taken to hospital and
one was admitted.

The injuries are not thought to be life-
threatening.
