A man who stabbed and injured eight people on Saturday night at a mall in Minnesota made reference to Allah and asked at least one victim if they were Muslim, CBS Minnesota cited local police as saying.

The shopping center was on lockdown for several hours after the suspect, who was wearing a private security uniform, launched the attack. An off-duty police officer later shot and killed the suspect.
