Two people were killed and five wounded in a Halloween attack in Quebec City by a knifeman dressed in medieval clothing, Canadian police said on Sunday.

According to reports, the suspect was taken into custody by local law enforcement on Sunday.

Local media reports suggest that the rampage occurred near the Chateau Frontenac, on rue des Ramparts in the city.
