A police truck is parked near the National Assembly of Quebec, Quebec City, Canada, on October 31, 2020 after two people were killed and five wounded by a suspect dressed in medieval clothing.
Quebec City police said they had arrested a suspect early on Sunday and that initial indications were the person acted for personal reasons rather than having any other motive, Reuters reported.
They said in tweets that the situation was under control, but told people residing near the area to stay indoors as the investigation was still ongoing.
The police said earlier they were hunting for a man dressed in medieval clothing carrying a bladed weapon, leaving “multiple victims”.
CBC News quoted Quebec City police spokesperson Etienne Doyon as saying two people had been killed and five others taken to hospital.
