Gun Carrying Man Ends Stabbing Spree at Salt Lake Grocery Store

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith's store.

Police say the suspect purchased a knife inside the store and then turned it into a weapon. Smith's employee Dorothy Espinoza says, "He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people."

Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. "There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms."

Good thing this wasn't a gun free zone.


Sounds like it was a

hate crime. His words of, "You killed my people," while carrying out his attack. Thankfully, somebody was exercising their rights at that moment.

The comments say it might have been a vietmanese man

What a time, place and way to supposedly reconcile, in his mind, what happened more than 40 years ago. Crazy.

We need swift and strict knife control.
