NORTH VANCOUVER, BC – One woman is dead and six others injured following a stabbing attack at Lynn Valley Library in North Vancouver on Saturday afternoon.
The Lower Mainland’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been called to the scene at Lynn Valley Village, where North Vancouver RCMP said earlier in the day that multiple victims had been stabbed “within and outside” Lynn Valley Library.
The attack occurred at about 1:45 p.m. in the busy Lynn Valley Village shopping district that was described by local media as “packed with weekend shoppers.”
One man, who police said is the only suspect in the stabbings, has been taken into custody. Video from the scene appeared to show the man injuring himself with a knife before being taken into custody.
