Officials to provide update on Minnesota mall stabbing probe


ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Authorities are planning to update the public on their investigation into last month’s stabbing that wounded 10 people at a central Minnesota mall.

The FBI has said it was investigating the Sept. 17 attack in St. Cloud as a potential act of terror, but details haven’t been released.

Last week, FBI Director James Comey said it appeared 20-year-old Dahir Ahmed Adan was at least partly inspired by extremist ideology.

Authorities say Adan went to the Crossroads Center mall with what appeared to be a kitchen knife and stabbed or cut 10 people before he was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer. None of his victims’ injuries were life-threatening.

A news conference is planned for Thursday morning in St. Cloud.
