A man kills two and injures five people in an attack in Quebec City, Canada on Sunday. Following the incident that began on Halloween Saturday night, the police have arrested a 24-year-old man in medieval clothes and sword prepared to cause as much harm as possible, police say.

“Dressed in medieval costume and armed with a Japanese sword, everything leads us to believe he chose his victims at random,” said Police Chief Robert Pigeon. The police department noted that he did not seem to be affiliated with or have ties to any terrorist groups. The incident began Saturday night and the suspect was arrested Sunday morning. Police claim to have found gasoline in the attacker's car.

 “We need to have a societal debate on the subject (of mental health) because it is becoming more and more difficult to manage," said Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume.
