Vancouver (British Columbia):- In Canada, a man carried out a knife attack in and around a library in North Vancouver, British Columbia province, killing one woman and injuring six others. Frank Zhang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said that one suspect has been taken into custody. He said that he is around 20 years old.
Zhang said the authorities have not yet come to know about the intention behind the incident. An eyewitness, Steve Mosop, said that he and one of his companions saw a sunny woman in the blood who told them that she had just been knifed. He then saw several victims within a radius of about 100 meters.
“It seemed that he was running in one direction and stabbed him with a knife on whoever was coming in the way,” Mosop said of the attacker. Canada’s Public Safety Minister Bill Blair expressed grief over the incident on Twitter and described it as a “senseless act of violence”. The attacker was attacked alone, police said. He has been taken into custody. Meanwhile, a viral video on the tetter shows that the attacker had also killed himself before the police arrested him.
