COCKEYSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say five people at an outdoor shopping mall were stabbed before officers shot and killed a suspect.

The Baltimore County Police Department said the victims were rushed from the Hunt Valley Towne Centre to hospitals Saturday afternoon, but they didn’t appear to suffer life-threatening wounds. The shopping center is in Cockeysville, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Baltimore.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach said four people were stabbed at a liquor store and the fifth at a noodle restaurant. She didn’t know if the victims were workers or customers.

Peach said the man was initially demanding money from liquor patrons and had a hunting-style knife with a roughly three-inch blade. She says the man was shot at an intersection near the mall.
