Police shoot dead knifeman who stabbed eight people while ‘making references to Allah’

The attacker “made references” to Allah during his bloody rampage, police said, which came to an end only after he was gunned down by an off-duty cop inside a Macy’s store. 

The attack, at the Crossroads Mall in St Cloud, Minnesota, is not currently being treated as terror-related, but investigations are ongoing.

St Cloud Police chief Blair Anderson told a press conference the attack started at about 8.15pm local time on Saturday, or 2.15am this morning UK time.

The suspect was dressed in a private security guard outfit, he added.
