By Canadian Press RCMP say multiple stabbings at North Vancouver library six taken to hospital

One person was killed and at least five wounded in a stabbing attack Saturday at a library in Vancouver.

According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in North Vancouver, one suspect has been taken into custody. "If you were here and you saw the one man who was taken into custody, if you heard him say anything, whatever the case may be, we need you to come forward".

A video allegedly showing the moment the police arrested the suspect was shared online, showing officers apprehending a man who holds what appears to be a knife.

IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Frank Jang said a total of six people were stabbed during the incident, and asked anyone who witnessed the event to speak with police as soon as possible. We believe we know the how, the what, the where and the when.

"We were driving up Lynn Valley Road and we saw a woman that was covered in blood and waving her arms and we thought it was a vehicle accident", he says. They then saw several victims within about 100 metres of each other, he said.

"It seemed like he was just running in a direction, whoever was in his path happened to be victimized", he says.
