At least eight people were injured on Saturday night in a shopping center in the US state of Minnesota in an attack with a knife whose author was shot, said the police.
The attack took place inside a shopping center located about 100 kilometers northwest of Minneapolis.
According to the local police chief, Blair Anderson, the attacker “made reference to Allah.”
“We have confirmed that he asked at least one person was Muslim before the attack,” he added.
The attacker was shot by a policeman who was not on duty.
Blair Anderson stressed that there is an ongoing investigation and can not say at this time “whether it was a terrorist attack.”
