Nice name.

The suspect was known to both Edmonton police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Marlin Degrand, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said the man was flagged in 2015 for extremist ideologies and police interviewed him at the time, but he said charges were not warranted after an “exhaustive investigation.” It was not clear when he first traveled to Canada, Fox News reported.

“We condemn the cowardly terror attacks on a police officer and pedestrians that occurred late last night in Edmonton, Canada. Law enforcement authorities from the United States are in touch with their Canadian counterparts to offer assistance with the ongoing investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, as we hope for their speedy and complete recovery,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.

The chaos began outside Commonwealth Stadium, where a Canadian Football League game was being played.

A major manhunt was launched.

The officer was not critically wounded.

Police chased down the attacker as he drove through the packed out streets in downtown Edmonton, The Sun reports.

He then ploughed into four pedestrians leaving them with multiple injuries before he was arrested after flipping the van on to its side.

Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said the incidents are being investigated “as an act of terror” and that the attacker acted alone.

The rented van had an ISIS flag in the front seat, he confirmed.

Dramatic photos showed the U-Haul on its side with the windscreen smashed out.

“Officer stabbing, pedestrians being run down investigated as terrorism, police chief says.”

Witness Kim Anderson told the Edmonton Sun: “There were people flying and everything. I’m shocked – I just see people flying.”

The streets had been full of revellers packing out pubs to watch the football.

The stabbed officer had been working routine traffic control near Commonwealth Stadium as thousands gathered to watch a Canadian Football League game.

The Federalist Papers reports that witness Brian McNeill told CBC he was with a group of friends in Boston Pizza at 106th Street when the van tore past on the wrong side of the street pursued by police.

“That high-speed chase should have never, ever in a million years have happened downtown,” he told the station. “If you’ve got 20 cops chasing one guy and there’s pedestrians that are walking down this road?”

The suspect was injured but not critically, Knecht said.

Recently, Edmonton television reported that ISIS was recruiting Muslims in their city and local moderate Muslims were trying to alert authorities.

The Globe and Mail spoke to a witness to the attack:

Austin Elgie, manager of The Pint bar just west of the downtown core, said the truck hit a person in the alley outside his establishment.

“We were just standing out front here and basically a U-Haul was heading north down 109th Street and peeled into this smoking alley here where people were having a smoke,” he said.

“There was like 10 cop cars following him.

“It was crazy. It just came around the corner, ripping. I thought at first he was pulling over for the cops coming by, but he was clearly the one they were chasing.”

Elgie said after the vehicle passed by the steps of the bar, the view was obscured by the corner of the building. But he said it hit a man who was a bar patron.

“I have a registered nurse on my bar team and I grabbed her and had her look after the guy until the ambulance came.”

“He was breathing and we got him in the ambulance and he was still breathing.”

After that, Elgie said he still had a bar to run that was full of people. Plus he had to talk to police and have staff review security footage.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also condemned the violence in Edmonton as a terrorist attack, and said he was “deeply concerned and outraged by this tragedy.”

“The Government of Canada and Canadians stand with the people of Edmonton after the terrorist attack on Saturday that sent an Edmonton Police Service officer to hospital and injured a number of innocent people who were out to cheer on their football team and to enjoy an evening in their city,” he said in a statement Sunday morning.

“We cannot – and will not – let violent extremism take root in our communities. We know that Canada’s strength comes from our diversity, and we will not be cowed by those who seek to divide us or promote fear. Edmonton is a strong and resilient city, and I am confident that its citizens will support one another to overcome this tragic event.”

Another day, another Islamic terror attack.

Unbelievable.
