Bloomington, MN – At least three people have been stabbed inside of the Mall of America Sunday night.
Star Tribune reports that the stabbing happened just after 6:45 pm in the Macy’s store.
The victims were stabbed repeatedly, and their condition has not been released at this time.
The suspect was wounded during the incident, but is now in custody.
A witness spoke with Star Tribune and said, “We saw two cops running toward Macy’s. By the time we got to the main area — the men’s department is to the right — more police started running in with their guns drawn.”
“My daughter could see people lying on the ground who had been stabbed.”
She talked to another witness who may have seen the suspect before the attack.
“He saw the man walking through before, talking to himself, really really loudly talking to himself,” she said. “Kind of drew attention to himself,” the witness said.
UPDATE: Bloomington police advise that the incident happened after a thief tried to steal another man’s belongings in the changing room. The victim spotted the suspect and the suspect started stabbing him. The victim called for help and a family member who responded to help was also stabbed. The victims were able to disarm the suspect and hold him for police.
The victims are stable and the suspect suffered minor injuries from the scuffle.
