Quebec City police name two victims, aged 56 and 61, killed in sword attack

Quebec City police say the coroner has confirmed the identities of two people killed during a deadly sword attack on Saturday.

Police say 56-year-old Francois Duchesne and 61-year-old Suzanne Clermont died in the Halloween night rampage.

They say both victims were residents of Quebec City.

Five people were also injured in the attack that police say was carried out by a man dressed in “medieval” garb who brandished a katana-like sword.

Police chief Robert Pigeon said earlier that the alleged attacker is a 24-year-old man from the north shore of Montreal who wanted to hurt as many people as possible.

The suspect, whose name has not yet been released, is expected to appear in court later today.
