MINNESOTA - Authorities say the 20-year-old man who stabbed 10 people last month at a central Minnesota mall asked several people whether they were Muslim before attacking.

Stearns County Attorney Janelle Kendall said Thursday at a news conference that Dahir Ahmed Adan was armed with two steak knives. The Sept. 17 stabbings began outside of the Crossroads Center mall and then moved inside.

FBI Director James Comey said last week it appeared Adan was at least partly inspired by extremist ideology.

Kendall also said the off-duty officer from a nearby city who shot Adan six times and killed him inside a Macy's store won't face charges.

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis asked that people continue to think about those who were injured as well as those who saw the attack.
