SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Well we heard a gunshot just a block away."

SOT, Woman interviewer (English): "Just a single gunshot?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah."

SOT, Witness 2 (English): "It was a big boom."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "Yeah, was it possible that it was the truck overturning? That's what I've heard from a number of other people. Are you sure it's a gunshot?

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah, yeah. Even the cop... well... didn't he say..."

SOT, Witness 2 (English): "Yeah the cop said run away."

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Run away, that's a gun shot."

SOT, Woman interviewer (English): "Was that what the cop was saying to you? Run away?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah."

SOT, Witness 2 (English): "Stay out of the way, yeah."

SOT, Woman interviewer (English): "What was the vibe among the police officers? Were they..."

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "I have no idea. I don't know."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "Sorry, whereabouts were you when you saw all of this?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Right here."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "Right at the corner of Jasper Avenue?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "Okay. Were you guys just tailgating or something?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah. Yeah."

SOT, Woman interviewer (English): "Were there many people walking around sidewalks when this happened?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Oh yeah. Yeah, lots of people. The bar's right there."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "But they told you to run and get away from here?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Oh no no, they didn't say nothing to me..."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "The police stayed..."

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "...to any of us."

SOT, Man interviewer 2 (English): "Weren't you there on the corner when it happened?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "The police did."

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah, just those guys that are right over there."

SOT, Woman interviewer (English): "So when did all this happen? When did they start taping off the road? Was it like, soon after?

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Yeah."

SOT, Man interviewer (English): "What's going through your head right now? I mean, what's it like to see something like that?"

SOT, Brian McNeill, witness (English): "Well that sucks because people got hit, right? It's terrible."

A police officer was run over then stabbed multiple times by an assailant in Edmonton, Saturday night, who later also engaged in a high-speed car chase with several pedestrian casualties.

At least four pedestrians were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. All the injured people, including the police officer, are in stable and non-life-threatening conditions, reports add. The police managed to stop the rampant driver and detain him.

The authorities are treating the incident as an act of terrorism, reports say.
