Report has confirmed that four people have been left dead and two others injured after a man “full of anger” went on a two-hour stabbing rampage in Los Angeles.
The suspect, 33, reportedly stabbed two men to death at his apartment complex at Garden Grove before he went out to kill a Subway worker and a security guard at a branch of 7-Eleven.
One of his victims was said to have been stabbed in the back as he made to fill his car at a gas station.
The man also went on to rob several businesses across the area, including a bakery and an insurance business, during the attack.
Police Lieutenant Carl Whitney while speaking on the attack said that the attacker was Hispanic and all his victims were Hispanic too. He added that the attacker’s motives were “robbery, hate and homicide”.
He said: “We know this guy was full of anger and he harmed a lot of people tonight.
The police believe that there was some sort of confrontation at the attacker’s apartment building which led to one person being stabbed in their flat. The person later died at the hospital while another being found dead on the balcony.
The owner of the bakery that was attacked said: “He went directly to the register and tried to open the register… he showed me a gun.” The attacker also took all the money she had before fleeing.
“I think I was very lucky because he thought I was a customer, not the owner.”
This is coming just days after 31 people were killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
