Medics took four people to the hospital after a knife-wielding man attacked a crowd of people near Central Library in downtown Indianapolis.

The suspect, later identified as 57-year-old Gary Madison, was among those taken to the hospital.

Witnesses say Madison showed up at the American Legion Mall on a bicycle with a bullhorn. When someone asked the man to quiet down, they say he started cutting people.

“He came approaching me talking about ‘I will kill y’all, I will kill all y’all,” Octavia Bridges said.

“He was just yelling all types of different things, so I really don’t know what was up with him,” Taylor George said.

George is 9-months pregnant and said the man tried to cut her, but she was able to get away from him.

“I was afraid that me and the baby were going to die,” George said.

Three victims were injured as well Madison. Two of the victims were listed in critical condition. The third only had minor injuries.

Madison was in serious condition when he was first taken to the hospital, but he improved enough police have since booked him on three preliminary charges of battery by means of a deadly weapon, a Class 3 Felony.
