A knife-wielding suspect who was dressed in a private security uniform while attacking at least nine people during a mass stabbing incident at the Crossroads Center shopping mall was shot dead by an off-duty police officer from Avon, Minn., authorities said.
Jason Falconer, former police chief of Albany, Minn., was shopping when he confronted the suspect.
At a press conference at the police department just after noon on Sunday, St. Cloud Mayor David Kleis said he believes Falconer prevented additional injuries and loss of life.
