QUEBEC — Police in Quebec City are slated to provide an update this morning on an overnight stabbing rampage in the provincial capital that left two people dead and five others injured.
They say a man in his mid-20s has been arrested in connection with the Halloween night attacks and that he was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, but no information was released about his condition.
Police said earlier that the five injured victims were in hospital but their lives did not appear to be in danger. They did not offer any more specific information about their conditions.
They are scheduled to hold a press conference, alongside Quebec City mayor Regis Labeaume, at 9:30 a.m.
Police didn’t speculate on a possible reason for the attack, however, they tweeted overnight that they had no information indicating the suspect’s motives were anything other than personal.
