At least two people killed in Quebec, Canada, by man in medieval clothing as police stated. Five were wounded in the Halloween night by man in his mid-20s. The Police arrested the allegedly suspect around 01:00 Quebec time.

The Prime Minister wrote Via Twitter, "My heart breaks for the loved ones of the two people killed in last night's horrific attack in Quebec City.”

"I'm also wishing a full recovery to the injured. We're keeping you in our thoughts and will be there for you." He wrote.

He also extended his appreciation to the first responders for their critical work. 


The Prime Minister offered his condolences to the families and friends of the persons killed; “My deepest condolences to Corporal James Choi’s family, friends, and Canadian Forces colleagues. As you mourn this tragic loss, know that we are here for you. We will never forget Corporal Choi’s service and sacrifice.”


The attack could be premeditated as Quebec City Police Chief Robert Pigeon said: “it was believed that the attack was premeditated, adding that the suspect, from the Montreal suburbs, came to Quebec City with "the intention of doing the most damage possible".


"Dressed in medieval costume and armed with a Japanese sword, everything leads us to believe he chose his victims at random," Mr Pigeon added.


Police says the suspect might have been attacking five years ago, “in a medical context”, but was not known to Police and didn’t have a criminal record.
