QUEBEC CITY (AP) — Police in Quebec City early Sunday arrested a man who killed two people and injured five others near the provincial legislature on Halloween.
The provincial police earlier said they were looking for a man dressed in medieval clothing and armed with a bladed weapon who has left “multiple victims.”
Police said five victims have been transported to a hospital, however, there was no immediate word on their conditions.
Quebec City Police spokesperson Etienne Doyon told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. that the suspect is a man in his mid-20s. Doyon confirmed two have died and five others are hurt.
Police are asking those in the area to remain indoors.
There’s no word on a possible motive for the attacks.
