3 dead, 2 injured in attacks at Massachusetts mall and home

TAUNTON, Mass. (AP) — Three people have been killed including a suspect and two others injured in attacks at a shopping mall and a home in Massachusetts.

State police say a man stabbed two people at a home in Taunton on Tuesday, then crashed a car through the front of a Macy’s store at the Silver City Galleria and stabbed two other people at the mall. It’s unclear which victims have died.

Authorities say an off-duty law enforcement officer shot and killed the suspect.

Witnesses reported a chaotic scene.

A motive for the attacks remains under investigation.

Officials say the suspect also may have been involved in an earlier car crash on the street where the first stabbings took place.

Taunton is about 40 miles south of Boston.
