Man with Islamic State flag plows car, U-Haul van into Canadian cop and pedestrians during rampage

Edmonton Police Service homicide detectives are investigating after a man's body was dug up from under a garage near 118 Avenue and 96 Street in north

During a press conference early Sunday morning, Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said the 30-year-old man who led police on a auto chase Saturday night is now in custody, also adding that police seized an ISIS flag from his vehicle.

It all began Saturday night outside the Edmonton Eskimos CFL football game at Commonwealth Stadium where it was military appreciation night. The officer was outside his vehicle, which had its lights flashing to improve visibility.

A driver of a Malibu Chevrolet crashed through traffic barricades at 8.15pm.

The knife attack ignited a wild search for the violent suspect in the province's capital before police say preluded a second assault involving a vehicle - and the same driver.

- The police officer's injuries are not critical.

"There is nothing that has come to their attention to this point that would lead them to believe that the threat level needs to be adjusted", Goodale said.

The suspect then drove off at speed and rammed through the police checkpoint, triggering a high-speed chase through the downtown area, packed with Saturday night crowds.

Edmonton Police investigate at the scene where a man hit pedestrians then flipped the U-Haul truck he was driving, pictured at the intersection at 107 Street and 100th Avenue in front of the Matrix Hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada October 1, 2017. Shortly afterwards, a van driver rammed into four pedestrians at least. There is no information on their condition.

Based on the actions and the evidence at the scene, the incidents were being investigated as "acts of terrorism", police said in a statement.

Knecht said police did not call off the chase of the U-Haul due to the seriousness of the crime. No updates have been provided on the pedestrians struck.

Austin Elgie, manager of The Pint bar just west of the downtown core, said the truck hit a person in the alley outside his establishment.

She said guests heard loud bangs like gunshots.

Pon posted pictures of the U-Haul on its side with a large hole in the windshield. "We have to show that's not going to happen, not in Edmonton", said group spokesman Aurangzeb Qureshi.

There was screaming and shouting, and people were running everywhere, ' said one witness.

While being chased, the suspect tried to hit pedestrians as he passed by crosswalks and alleyways, Knetch said.

Police have one man in custody and say they think he acted alone, but they aren't ruling out that others are involved. "We are urging all Edmontonians to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings".

"Contact police if you see anything suspicious or hear anything suspicious", he said.

The scene was captured on a surveillance video which was released by the police.
