Police in Quebec City early Sunday arrested a man on suspicion of killing two people and injuring five others in a stabbing rampage near the provincial legislature on Halloween. The suspect, a man in his mid-20s, was dressed in medieval garb.
The attacks occurred late Saturday in a neighborhood near the Quebec provincial Parliament building. The police said they began searching for a man suspected of carrying out the attacks, who was described as wearing medieval costume and carrying a sword, after receiving a call just before 10:30 p.m.
The provincial police earlier said they were looking for the man, and he was armed with a bladed weapon. Police then asked those in the area to remain indoors. Police said the suspect is in his mid-20s and confirmed two have died and five others are hurt. There was no word on a possible motive for the attacks.
