It appears as though the incident started with a car crash and ended with a suspect stabbing several people.

Witness Justin Lloyd said he was asleep in a nearby apartment when he heard what he thought was a car alarm.

“We looked out the window and realized something bigger was going on,” he said. “It appeared someone had crashed a car.

“I looked out the window and there was a man brandishing a machete and chasing people around the gas station parking lot. One of the people grabbed a rock to try and protect themselves and another person grabbed a garbage bin lid. It was pretty chaotic.”

Lloyd said he was disturbed to see the man hit someone on the ground with the machete.

“I saw it once and I didn’t want to watch it, I turned away,” he added.

Police say one man has been taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
