A suspect is in custody after several people were stabbed Thursday afternoon at a plasma center in Petersburg, Virginia, according to Police Chief Kenneth Miller.
Police were called to the Octapharma Plasma center at around 4:40 p.m. That is when police said a man walked into the plasma center and used a “cutting instrument” to hurt several people inside.
Sources said nurses and customers hid in a restroom during the attack. “As far as I know business was usual, patrons were inside just like any other day,” an officer said.
Three victims were transported to the hospital. One male patient is in critical condition was transferred to another hospital. One female victim was in fair condition and another female victim was in good condition, according to hospital officials.
Police said the suspect was taken into custody without incident. A motive is not known at this time.
