Minnesota Authorities Investigating Possible Terrorist Incident

Sep 19, 2016

The stabbing of nine people at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota over the weekend is being investigated as a potential act of terrorism. The FBI said ISIS claimed responsibility for the stabbings.

Police say a young Somali man dressed as a private security guard entered the Crossroads Center Mall Saturday with what looked like a kitchen knife to carry out the attack. He was later shot and killed by an off-duty officer.
