Police announced on Twitter that the serial killer attacked in the city center around 14, near the library building. Six people were taken to hospital.
Amy Robertson of British Columbia Emergency Health Services told CBC television that six people had been hospitalized. She was unable to give details of the patients’ condition. She added that 11 ambulances had been sent to the scene.
According to Global News, a woman died as a result of a violent attack.
Justin Prasad, who works next to the scene, told CBC News that he saw the suspect who had been arrested by the police and taken in the ambulance. He claims that officers could have fired rubber bullets at the suspect.
“I’ve never seen so many policemen in one area,” Prasad said.
The attacker was arrested. It is not known what motivated him.
Frank Chang of the Vancouver Police Crime Brigade said the attacker had been arrested. He added that he did not know what his motives were. The identity of the victims has yet to be determined.
– All I can say is that he was so shocking. It was a shock to everyone, including the police, Zhang said. He noted that the attack usually took place in a very quiet area.
Zhang said the attacker acted alone. He added that he did not appear to have anything to do with the victims, and it was likely that he attacked random people.
The North Vancouver area reported that the library was closed for the rest of the day and asked people to avoid the area.
