FBI Seeks Public’s Help In St. Cloud Mall Stabbings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Federal investigators are asking for the public’s help as they investigate the stabbings of 10 people at a Minnesota mall.

The FBI issued an appeal Thursday for information or cellphone video from people who were at Crossroads Center in St. Cloud on Saturday evening.

Authorities say Dahir Ahmed Adan, 20, wounded 10 people before he was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer. An Islamic State-run news agency claimed Adan was a “soldier” for the group.

Federal authorities have said they are treating it as a potential act of terrorism, but have released little information since the attack. Family members and friends have said Adan wasn’t highly religious and they didn’t know what might have prompted the attack.

    Aww jee wizz. Reg Chapman closed the comment section on the hate crime where black gangs did a mob beat-down on a 70 year old man in front of his Hopkins home.
    Maybe we can ask the FBI to look into that one too.

    Does it matter if the criminal committed the deed in the name of isis? He’s still a terrorist, whether he’s a lone wolf or some official soldier of evil. It would be nice if the news would stop downplaying the seriousness of these attacks.
