WHEATON, Md. — Police are working to confirm a description of the person who stabbed two men inside Westfield Wheaton Mall. Both men died from their injuries.

Officers called to the mall Tuesday afternoon for a report of an assault found two men suffering from stab wounds, Montgomery County Police say in a statement. Both were taken to local hospitals, where they died.

A small group of people, including the two victims, fought with the suspect on the lower level of the mall a short time before the stabbings occurred, according to police.

The suspect fled the scene and is at large, and police say they’re trying to confirm a description of the suspect and a motive for the stabbings.
