A SOMALI MUSLIM immigrant attacked and hacked two men to death with an axe at a pub in Tuira area of Oulu, police said. The attack took place at about 6:00pm and included one employee of the pub.
YLE via Liveleak (h/t Maria J) The police on late Wednesday night captured the man suspected of the killings. The suspect was apparently nabbed at Myllyoja neighbourhood in Oulu, where a huge police operation was under way. News agency STT had earlier reported that one of the victims of the axe killing was inside the pub while the other one was outside.
According to STT reporters, the area had been widely cordoned off, but there was movement of people still on a street nearby the pub. The police confirmed that one of the victims was a male employee of the pub. A shopkeeper at a nearby store told STT reporters that the shop was forced to remain closed for a while after a boy came to the shop and informed what had happened in the pub.
Police apprehended the suspect in two murders committed on Wednesday evening in Oulu. Police say they shot the man during the operation. The police officer was wearing a helmet, so he got away with slight injuries. No motive is yet known. (He was a Muslim, that’s the only motive he needs)
