FBI Investigating St. Cloud Mall Stabbing; Clinton Briefed

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The FBI says it’s investigating the attack Saturday night where a man stabbed nine people in a St. Cloud mall before being fatally shot by a police officer.

The attack happened at the Crossroads Center around 8 p.m. The victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and most were treated and released from a local hospital.

St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson said the attacker, who has yet to be identified, was wearing a security uniform and was armed with a knife. He added that the attacker made at least one reference to Allah and asked a victim if they were Muslim.

Dave Kleis, the mayor of St. Cloud, also said the suspect was talking about Allah and asking victims if they were Muslims.

Authorities, including the FBI and the local police, say they are not ready to call the attack an act of terrorism.

However, an ISIS-related media outlet reported Sunday that the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State.”

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said she was briefed on the stabbing, as well as the bombings in New York City and New Jersey.

Donald Trump, Clinton’s Republican rival, has yet to comment on the St. Cloud attack, although he did comment on the East Coast bombings.

The St. Cloud suspect was shot by an off-duty officer from another district. His only other run-ins with the law were minor traffic violations, police say.

    Democrats are sending in the spin doctors to make sure the press gets the story “right”.

  2. BigShot says:

    LOL! Clinton briefed… her response was, “What difference does it make at this point?”

  3. Webb says:

    “We are not ready to call this terrorism.” Apparently the DFL-paid lobotomy worked.

  4. Jl Kerrbear says:

    Clinton briefed by FBI? Why?

  5. Prediction, Trump will take 90% of St Cloud.

  6. Bob says:

    Clinton is a big part of the problem

  7. Hillary has done things that killed a lot of these people in the middle east — Trump just hurts their feelings.

  8. ISIS in America? No way. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion in Manhattan was the result of an “intentional act,” though he said it was not related to terrorism.
    How is an intentional explosion not terrorism? It doesn’t matter what religion, ideology or whoever did it. It is still an act of terrorism regardless. This is the dumbest statement I’ve ever heard.

    This is exactly what to expect from a typical Democratic Liberal Sheeple.
    Hillary Clinton looked drugged up like she was going to pass out when talking about the bombing to reporters on on her plane.

    I saw Clinton when she made a comment after the attack…SHE WAS STONED! Eyes glazed…no blinking…monotoned voice… She was drugged out! Worked 20 years NYPD…Know someone stoned when I see them!

  10. Why brief Clinton? She already knows that Islam is a religion of peace.
