The 33-year-old suspect, whose name was not released, was finally arrested in the evening outside of a 7-Eleven convenience store with a knife and a handgun. He is being questioned by the authorities, as the motive of the attacks remains unclear. In total, law enforcement are investigating at least eight crime scenes in the area.
@DLoesch once again it’s proven, take the guns away It doesn’t matter. Evil will find a away to hurt innocent people.— Nick (@Leprechaun73) August 8, 2019
“These are all random acts of violence,” Garden Grove Lt. Carl Whitney told the journalists. “Our suspect was not associated with any of our victims.”
The incident comes in the wake of a series of deadly shootings which reignited a fierce gun control debate in the US. The stabbing spree, however, strengthened the argument of the pro-gun crowd, with dozens immediately noting that banning firearms, knives, vehicles and everything else remotely dangerous would not solve the underlying crime and violence problems.
