Family, friends stunned by Dahir Adan's attack in St. Cloud


ST. CLOUD — Dahir Adan was a quiet and studious 20-year-old who came from a humble and well-known local Somali family.

But Saturday night, in an unexplained fit of rage, he put on a private security uniform, headed to the Crossroads Center mall in town and pulled a knife, slashing, stabbing and injuring 10 people before he was fatally shot by an off-duty police officer.

The stunning attack, in which Adan — a Somali refugee who moved to the United States with his family when he was 3 months old — reportedly referred to Allah and asked at least one victim whether they were Muslim, is being investigated as an act of terrorism.
