Portuguese police shot a man suspected of stabbing two people to death at an Ismaili Muslim center in Lisbon, Portugal’s prime minister said, APA reports citing Associated Press.
Prime Minister Antonio Costa told reporters it was “a criminal act” and that two lives had been lost in the incident Tuesday.
The suspect is hospitalized, Prime Minister said.
“Everything points to this being an isolated incident,” Antonio Costa said, without elaborating. Police made no immediate comment but said they would provide more information later Tuesday.
