I think we're gonna need a knife ban too.
-- BRAMPTON, Ont. -- A gruesome multiple stabbing at a Brampton strip mall early this afternoon has left two people dead, including a bystander who tried to intervene in what police believe was a domestic dispute.So some poor brave soul tries to intervene in a domestic dispute... and ends up paying for it with his life.
Both the woman and the Good Samaritan died at the plaza, which was quickly flooded with police cruisers and emergency vehicles and cordoned off with yellow tape.
Habib Syed, who works at the nearby Bestway Food Market, witnessed part of yesterday's violence and recounted seeing a black man try to stab himself in the neck with a bloody knife before slumping to the ground, shouting, ‘My wife is dead. my wife is dead.'Funny... no farmers, hunters or target shooters involved in this one either.
Pizza maker Amarik Mangar also saw some of the fight and described the slain woman as white and heavy-set. The passerby was also white, witnesses said.
UPDATE: And late Wednesday... another one
