One person was killed in a series of stabbings Wednesday morning at and around a Beaverton bank, police say.

Officer Matt Henderson, a Beaverton police spokesman, said he thinks three people were stabbed. At last one of the stabbings occurred inside a Wells Fargo bank branch in the city’s Murrayhill Marketplace.

The suspect stole a car after the stabbings and drove into the Tigard area, where he was apprehended, Henderson said.

No information about the circumstances of the stabbings has been released. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the stabbings were part of a bank robbery.

Noushin Luluvachi, of nearby Bella Salon, said police cars flooded the plaza and authorities ordered businesses to keep their doors shut. She said she has to open the door for each client at the salon.

“We don’t know anything yet,” she told The Oregonian/OregonLive on Wednesday morning. “There are tons of police cars here.”

The bank and salon are part of the Murrayhill Marketplace, which also includes a Safeway and a mix of shops, restaurants and offices, including a Planet Fitness and Starbucks.

This report will be updated.
