3 Remain Hospitalized Following St. Cloud Mall Stabbing

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP/WCCO) — A Minnesota hospital official says three of the nine people who were attacked at a mall in St. Cloud remain hospitalized.

St. Cloud Hospital spokeswoman Chris Nelson said Sunday that the other six people were released and that none of the three still at the hospital has injuries that are considered life-threatening.

St. Cloud’s police chief, Blair Anderson, earlier said that of the initial eight people who were stabbed in Saturday night’s attack, only one remained hospitalized.

Authorities say a man dressed in a private security uniform started stabbing people and reportedly made references to Allah. An off-duty police officer shot and killed him.

On Sunday, an ISIS-related media outlet called the attacker a “soldier of the Islamic State.” It was not clear, however, if the terror group had planned the attack or knew about it beforehand.

    I was born in St. Cloud. It used to be a very nice city. I suspect that this Isis attack will drive more Minnesotans to vote GOP. Wouldn’t it be amazing in Trump carried Minnesota. MN has not gone GOP since 1972.

      And it won’t in 2016… Most Minnesotans are too smart to support the GOP.

  2. his is what we get for being “minnesota nice”, by allowing this now huge population of people to come into MN originally sponsored by christian faiths, to decimate our state. Do they do anything positive for our state?. It always seems we’re catering to their needs.
