A suspected terrorist mowed down a crowd of people with a U-Haul truck and stabbed a police officer while fleeing the scene on foot in Edmonton, Canada.

The first incident occurred shortly after 8 p.m. Mountain Time. The officer noticed the driver's name was "very similar" to that of the Malibu's registered owner.

The suspect peeled out with dozens of police cars in pursuit. Currently, it is believed four pedestrians were struck by the truck and transported to the hospital with multiple injuries. There is no information on their condition.

The EPS and the RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) are now investigating the incidents as an Act of Terrorism under Section.

But the man in the truck then took off toward downtown Edmonton, according to the police account.

"Holy shit, this is too fast", he thought as he watched vehicles driving west on Jasper Avenue.

While being chased, the suspect tried to hit pedestrians as he passed by crosswalks and alleyways, Knetch said. Then he says he heard what he believed was a gunshot.

Mr Knecht said they did not call off the chase of the van due to the seriousness of the crime.

A suspect, aged around 30, has been arrested and the authorities believe he acted alone.
