Motive Of St. Cloud Mall Attacker Still Unclear 18 Sep 17

(Learfield News Service/St. Cloud, MN) — One year later, the motive of a man who stabbed ten shoppers with kitchen knives at St. Cloud’s Crossroads center mall remains a mystery.

Newly unsealed court filings show the difficulty the FBI has had in determining his motivation and whether he had any guidance from virtual terror planners abroad. Authorities say they may never know what motivated Dahir Adan to stab shoppers at the mall that night.

Adan was shot to death by an off-duty police officer at the scene of the attack.
