One person was killed and two others were hurt in a “random” attack on Wednesday in northeast Edmonton, according to police. The suspect is now in custody, they say. According to police, they received many complaints claiming three persons had been stabbed close to Hermitage Road and Henry Avenue around 2:30 in the afternoon. According to EPS, the male suspect is believed to have approached the 32-year-old victim at a bus stop before stabbing her. Only a short distance away, the second woman was apparently stabbed shortly after in her tent.
“It is believed that the suspect then fatally wounded the 38-year-old male at the intersection of Hermitage Road and Henry Avenue,” the statement added. Around 3:30 p.m., EPS issued a dangerous person alert, advising the general public to stay away from the area because the suspect was equipped with a “edged weapon” and was potentially dangerous. Several businesses, daycare centers, and schools in the Homesteader neighborhood were placed on lockdown at that time. About an hour later, police announced in a follow-up statement that the suspect had been taken into custody and the alert had been canceled. According to EPS, no charges have been brought.
