According to police, a stabbing occurred in a supermarket close to the Italian city of Milan, resulting in one fatality and at least five other injuries, some of which were critical.

According to local media, a man began attacking people in Assago, and a 30-year-old supermarket cashier was killed as a result. Pablo Mari, a football player on loan from Arsenal, was one of the injured.

A suspect, 46, has been taken into custody. Terrorist intent has been ruled out by the police. According to reports, the attacker had mental health issues and had taken the weapon from the grocery store shelves.

Around 18:30 local time (16:30 GMT), the man began randomly stabbing people at a Carrefour in a nearby retail center. Inside the center, people were allegedly screaming as they scurried away in fear.

According to reports, several customers detained the attacker and turned him over to the police when they got on the scene. Mari, a 29-year-old Spanish defender, was stabbed in the back, but he is not in critical condition. According to Adriano Galliani, CEO of Monza, who spoke to Sky Italy, Mari was attacked while out shopping with his wife and son.
