The mayhem told sources may have been related to a domestic dispute, whilst immediate conflicting reports telling of a random encounter.

Tuesday’s mayhem began around 7 p.m. with the double stabbing on Myricks Street in the town just 25 miles east of Providence, R.I., and 40 miles south of Boston.

Witnesses told FOX25 Arthur DaRosa forcing his way into the home, grabbed a knife and stabbed the two women before leaving.

As Arthur DaRosa left in a stolen black Honda Accord he became involved in a crash with a red truck at the bottom of the driveway. Undaunted the assailant drove to his next bastion of violence.

Soon after the DaRosa drove his car into a glass door at a nearby Macy’s store at the mall, where according to a report via the nydailynews, ran inside, proceeded to assault a number of people before stabbing two more people.

One of two stabbed, a 56-year-old man, was killed according to a report via whdh.

The carnage ended when the suspect was shot dead by an off duty police officer.

‘I heard shots and saw cops loading AR-15s and I ran for my life,‘ one witness told WBZ. Another said shots rang out in the mall’s Bertucci’s restaurant.

The officer who shot the suspect is a Plymouth County Sheriff’s Deputy, WBZ reported.

Reacting to the possible threat of terrorism, police confirmed the acts had ‘no known nexus to terrorism,’ while initially telling that no known motive was known.

‘At this point none of the victims are deceased although some injuries may be life-threatening,’ police said. ‘All were transported to area hospitals.’

Neighbors described via 7news murdered woman Patricia Slavin and her family as ‘nice people.

‘Very nice people, I couldn’t ask for better neighbors all around.’

Of note a timeline from Nov 4. 2009 showed Arthur Derosa, 21, 29 Myrtle St., being charged with assault with a dangerous weapon (a computer chair), malicious damage to a motor vehicle, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

    What this guy did reminds me of a similarv attack jwe had in a small town south of Montreal last year. First, the guy attacked military personel with his car and he was wielding a knife at people. He was taken down by police. At first they didn’t say anything in the media about this being linked to Islamists. But later it came out, the guy was a Canadian born white milk toast guy, who had converted to Islam and was frequenting a Mosque in this small town. Here is one news report about it: http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/saint-jean-sur-richelieu-attack-was-an-unacceptable-act-of-violence-against-canada-public-safety-minister-says

    I live just a few miles away from all of this. In fact my family and I were enjoying dinner out on the porch and then we hear all kinds of cops going to the scene where I later found out was the first accident he caused. Crazy.
