BREAKING: Multiple People Stabbed in Mall of America

At least three people have been stabbed inside of the Mall of America.

Bloomington, MN - At least three people have been stabbed inside of the Mall of America Sunday night.

Star Tribune reports that the stabbing happened just after 6:45 pm in the Macy's store.

The victims were stabbed repeatedly, and their condition has not been released at this time.

The suspect was wounded during the incident, but is now in custody.

A witness spoke with Star Tribune and said, "We saw two cops running toward Macy's. By the time we got to the main area — the men's department is to the right — more police started running in with their guns drawn."

"My daughter could see people lying on the ground who had been stabbed."

She talked to another witness who may have seen the suspect before the attack.

"He saw the man walking through before, talking to himself, really really loudly talking to himself," she said. "Kind of drew attention to himself," the witness said.

UPDATE: Bloomington police advise that the incident happened after a thief tried to steal another man's belongings in the changing room. The victim spotted the suspect and the suspect started stabbing him. The victim called for help and a family member who responded to help was also stabbed. The victims were able to disarm the suspect and hold him for police.

The victims are stable and the suspect suffered minor injuries from the scuffle.

Amazing how somali pulls a knife and starts stabbing slashing in a dept store in America. Pure savage act and mainstream media covers it up. Mall of America needs to arm their security force. Flash light and a smile is not going stop these savage attacks.

Thank Obama for flooding this country with islamic radical refugees who hate America. But it goes back to Bill Clinton administration. He opened the flood gate after black hawk down in somalia. 90s there were flying in thousands a month to northeast to midwest. Trump needs to slam the door on all refugees coming here.
Enough. Let the rest of the world take these fools.

Dems and far left are so pro refugee because they use them to stay in power. Refugees Illegaly vote. And amazing the governor of Minnesota saids if you have a problem with refugees then leave the state. What a piece of shit governor.

Get your concealed carry permit, and take a proper course that teaches you when, and how to use your weapon. Practice, practice. Then carry your weapon. Don't be a victim.

"Get your concealed carry permit, and take a proper course that teaches you when, and how to use your weapon. Practice, practice. Then carry your weapon. Don't be a victim." Yeah, not allowed to carry in the Mall.

"Amazing how somali pulls a knife and starts stabbing slashing in a dept store in America." More amazing than the white man who just shot a bunch of people in a texas church, or the white man who just shot a bunch of people at a las vegas concert?

"So do we now pass laws for knife control? I am still waiting on the new Rental Truck Control!" The people stabbed were able to subdue the assailant... what do you think the chances of that would be if they were shot up close with an ar15 braintrust? Also, there are already extremely strict regulations on rental vehicles, including the ability to track people who rent one via their drivers licence. Do you have a gun owners licence? No? Then probably shut up you halfwit.

I agree. If have a carry permit carry. Citizenry is the true first responders.
And im retired pd. Its going be 6-8 minutes before cavalry arrives. You have a gun engage and neutralize the threat. But remember the boys and girls in blue wont know u are lawful gun owner. I suggest u yell out license gun owner get down and when u see pd put the gun down step back and yell to them licensed gun owner. Hands up. Tention will be high.
