A man entered Smith’s Marketplace one afternoon and purchased a knife.
Police say the man then used the knife as a weapon and attacked several people. One victim was stabbed in the abdomen while another was stabbed in the head and arms. All the while, the knife-wielding assailant had been yelling at his victims that they had “killed his people.”
Before he was able to locate another target, a citizen with a concealed firearm [and requisite permit] intervened. The man with the knife was told to drop his weapon or be shot.
He complied and was detained until police arrived.
