Last evening a man attacked innocent bystanders at the Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota with a knife. Eight civilians were injured before an off-duty police officer drew his weapon, shooting and killing the suspect.
This morning we learned that all eight victims are expected to survive their injuries. We also just learned that ISIS is officially claiming responsibility for the attack. An Islamic State news agency released a report this morning called the suspect “a soldier of the Islamic State”.
The Crossroads mall remains closed for today as investigation on the site continues.
