TAUNTON (CBS) - An off-duty officer shot and killed a man who allegedly stabbed two people at a shopping mall and two others at a home in Taunton Tuesday night. Two of the victims did not survive.

Police responded to the Silver City Galleria shopping mall just before 7:00 p.m. after the man crashed a black Honda Accord into the entrance of a Macy's store.

Moments later, the man allegedly stabbed two people inside the mall. The unidentified suspect was shot and killed by an off-duty Plymouth County sheriff's deputy at the mall.

Two other victims were stabbed at a home on Myricks Street.

It is unclear if the victims who died were stabbed at the mall or at the Myricks Street home.


Witnesses tell me they saw as many as 5-6 victims being attended to, one of whom, they say, is pregnant #tauntonpic.twitter.com/k9IKBtssT3

The suspect may have also been involved in a crash on Myricks Street prior to the stabbings there. A damaged red Ford Ranger pickup truck was towed from the scene.

One of the victims who was stabbed at the mall was a pregnant woman, a witness told WBZ.

According to State Police, there is no threat to the public. "The suspect's motive remains under investigation but at this point we are aware of no nexus to terrorism," State Police said.

A witness said shots were fired inside a Bertucci's restaurant inside the mall.

Another witness said, "I heard shots and saw cops loading AR-15s and I ran for my life."

The mall was evacuated after the incident.

The identities of the victims and suspect have not been released.

They aren't releasing names....they have no clear motive... they are still investigating ... but they believe there is no connection to terrorism and are certain there is no threat to the public..... except for all the stabbing at a public place ..I don't see any threat to the public or terroristic acts either

Stopped by an off duty officer....
Wonder if he would have been stopped at the beginning of his rampage by an armed civilian?

But we won't ask that question.
I wonder when the American people will wake up and smell the coffee.

Yep According to State Police, there is no threat to the public. No biggie just a few Stabbings if the off duty cop wasn't there with his GUN he would have stopped stabbing people anyway.

Oh! You Mean "Swept under the Prayer Rug".
Here is how we know they want this to go away and not have any questions asked.... we have no call for "common sense " gun laws... likewise ...we have no reverends or community leaders calling for a special investigator to find out why another black man was killed by police.... the guy is DOA ...done ..nothing to see here.
