Cops said “multiple victims” were knifed both inside and outside the library by a sole attacker.

Witness Mary Craver told Global News: “I was in the library community room and just outside, suddenly, we hear yelling and everyone stopped and stared, everyone started running out the side door.

“I started running too.”

Emergency services said they were called to the scene around 1.45pm.

Eleven ambulances rushed to the library and took six people to hospital.

North Vancouver Mayor Mike Little asked any witnesses to come forward.
