Police said that one person was killed and three others were wounded in a stabbing attack inside a restaurant in Austin, the capital of Texas.
She added that this operation came within a series of attacks carried out by one person inside a shopping area in the city, according to the Associated Press.
She explained that these attacks began with the entry of the suspect, whose identity was not revealed by the police, but who said that he was a 27-year-old man, into a cafe and hit a person “for no apparent reason.”
She added that the suspect fled quickly after that and entered a restaurant where he stabbed two people, and fled to the top of a roof of a building and then jumped from it.
Police said that one of those who was stabbed died later and the other was seriously injured.
She said that three people, including a policeman, tried to stop the suspect, but were unable to do so.
Police did not reveal details about the attacker or his motives.
But hours after the attack, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said on his Twitter account that the attacker appeared to be a “homeless man with a criminal record.”
