A man dressed in Medieval garb attacked multiple victims with what police called a “bladed weapon” in Quebec on Saturday night, leaving at least two dead, according to reports.
Police in the French-Canadian city reported the incident on Twitter shortly before midnight and urged residents to stay indoors while the suspect remains on the loose, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
The incident took place near Parliament Hill close to the national assembly, police said.
According to Canada’s CTV News, five victims were taken to a local hospital but there was no information on their conditions.
Authorities also did not immediately release details concerning the two people who were killed or say if there were additional victims.
“It remains to be determined, but these are serious attacks,” police spokesperson Etienne Doyon told the station.
