The suspect in the stabbing of two women in an Ismaili Muslim center in Lisbon has been shot by the Portuguese Police.

The women were Portuguese staff members at the center, the head of the community, Narzim Ahmad, told Portuguese television SIC

After being notified, the Police said they went to the scene and encountered the suspect, who was "armed with a large knife".

Police said they ordered him to surrender, but the suspect did not comply and walked toward the officers, who shot him. He was then taken to a hospital in Lisbon and remanded in custody.

In addition to the two dead women, the Police report states that there are other injured persons, but no other details are given.

Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa told reporters the attack was "a criminal act".

"Everything shows that this is an isolated incident", he said, adding that the motives of this act are being investigated, but it is too early to "speculate on the motives".

Ismaili Shia Muslims, commonly known as Ismailis, belong to the Shia branch of Islam, according to their website. They live in more than 25 countries of the world./ REL
