Police say five people who got injured in the attack were transported to a local hospital, but the local administration is yet to make any official announcement on their conditions.

Residents of the area have been asked by the local police as the search for the suspect continues. Police had urged anyone with information about the incident, or the location of the suspect to call 911.

Queben police is yet to make any statement on the number of deaths or the numbers of injured people but it is expected that an official statement will be released on Sunday.
