Four people were killed and two people were injured late Wednesday after a series of robberies turned into a stabbing spree at multiple locations throughout Orange County, California, police said. The Garden Grove Police Department said the stabbings started around 4 p.m. at an apartment complex in Garden Grove, where two people were stabbed to death and another person was taken to a hospital with injuries. The suspect proceeded to attempt to rob a bakery before stabbing a woman at an insurance company, according to police. She is expected to survive. Afterward, the suspect stabbed a man at a Chevron gas station whose nose was “almost severed off,” Garden Grove Police Lt. Carl Whitney said at a press conference. The suspect then stabbed a man to death at a nearby Subway in Santa Ana, and afterward killed a security guard at a 7-Eleven across the street, Whitney said. “Robbery, hate, homicide. This is all of the above,” Whitney said at the press conference. “It’s just pure tragedy right now.” The 33-year-old unidentified suspect was arrested at the 7-Eleven, according to police. Garden Grove and Santa Ana police are investigating at least eight crime scenes in the area, ABC7 reports.
