Isis claimed responsibility for the attack at the Crossroads Center mall in St. Cloud on Saturday night in a statement released today through their propaganda channel.

The assailant, who reportedly made references to Allah and asked at least one person whether they were Muslim, injured nine people, St Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson said.

Shots broke out in Macy’s, and a off-duty officer from another jurisdiction killed the suspect, according to Mayor Dave Kleis.

Anderson held off on calling the attack an act of terrorism on Saturday, saying instead: ‘We will be diligent and get to the bottom of this.’
