Quebec City, November 1
Police in Quebec City early on Sunday arrested a man on suspicion of killing two people and injuring five others in a stabbing rampage on Halloween near the provincial legislature in Quebec City.
They say a man in his mid-20s has been arrested in connection with the Halloween night attacks and taken to a hospital. Quebec police said in a tweet their initial information indicates the motive is personal.
Police had earlier warned residents to remain indoors as they hunted for a man dressed in medieval clothing and armed with a bladed weapon who had left “multiple victims.” Spokesman Etienne Doyon said police were first notified of the stabbings near the National Assembly shortly before 10:30 pm on Saturday.
The five injured victims were taken to a hospital, and a spokeswoman said their lives do not appear to be in danger. Doyon declined to offer any information about the two people who were killed. — AP
