SAINT CLOUD, M.N (KRQE, AP) – At least nine people are injured after a man carried out a knife attack in a Saint Cloud, Minnesota mall Saturday night.
Police say the man was dressed in a private security uniform and made a reference to Allah.
They say the incident ended with an off-duty officer shooting the man dead.
Mayor David Kleis says there were nine people who were hurt, not eight, as authorities previously reported. He says the ninth person took themselves to a hospital and was treated and released. Three of the victims remain hospitalized with injuries that aren’t considered life-threatening.
Police also say the suspect asked at least one person during the course of the attack whether they were Muslim.
