A terrorism investigation is underway in Edmonton, where a police officer was stabbed and four pedestrians struck down by a fleeing U-Haul truck Saturday night.
A 30-year-old Edmonton man is in custody and police think he acted alone, but they aren’t ruling out the potential for others to be involved.
“We are urging Edmontonians to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings,” Edmonton Police Service (EPS) Chief Rod Knecht said in a 3 a.m. news conference on the attacks.
At around 11:30 p.m., reporter Laurel Gregory was just wrapping up a live report at the end of Global Edmonton’s News at 11 when a police officer shouted out a warning: “Get behind a tree. Or a car. This is for your own protection!”
These sort of low tech attacks are hard to prevent. I am surprised that they have remained such isolated events. I am not surprised at how little press this has received here in the States.
