Another day, another senseless attack.
On Friday, Finland police say one suspect was shot in the leg and arrested after a stabbing attack that left one person dead and at least seven others hospitalized in the southwestern city of Turku.
Authorities sent a tweet urging citizens to evacuate the city center, as they were still on the hunt for potential perps.
Eyewitness Kent Svensson, 44, from Sweden told CNN of the incident:
“It was really horrible. We were sitting on a terrace just next to the square and this woman just screamed like hell and this guy was standing in front of her with a huge knife just stabbing people … There was blood everywhere.”
As you know, this comes just on the heels of terrorist attacks in Spain yesterday — so people are being asked to take extra precaution, especially in public spaces.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn more, but in the meantime, please stay safe!
