A woman is dead and six other people are injured after police in North Vancouver said a suspect stabbed them in and around a public library in a quiet suburb of the North Shore.
North Vancouver RCMP said a suspect is in custody after he was arrested around 2 p.m. PT on Saturday near the Lynn Valley branch, on 1277 Lynn Valley Road, which is part of a local shopping centre.
Amy Robertson of B.C. Emergency Health Services said six patients were taken to hospital. She said 11 ambulances and two supervising vehicles were deployed to the scene. Robertson wasn’t able to release details on the conditions of the patients.
Police said in a tweet that there only appears to have been one suspect and that there is no ongoing threat to the public.
Video captured by Sam Garrett and published on Twitter showed multiple officers restraining a man on the ground after he appeared to cut himself before collapsing.
