COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Columbus police have identified the man who stabbed two women and a man to death and critically injured a woman before he was fatally shot by an officer while holding a butcher knife.

Police on Wednesday identified the man killed by police Monday morning outside a Columbus apartment complex as 64-year-old Abadi Gebregziber.

Police say the women are 33-year-old Azeb Demewez and 18-year-old Selam Habte, and the man is 19-year-old Russom Habte.

Police say 51-year-old Alganesh Gebrezgabiher remains hospitalized in critical condition.

WBNS-TV reports Selam and Russom Habte were sister and brother and Alganesh Gebrezgabiher is their mother.

Police haven’t said what prompted the attack.

Police say an officer shocked Abadi Gebregziber with a stun gun before another officer opened fire and killed him.
