Police in Dayton, Ohio say a suspect in a stabbing stole a police SUV and crashed it into a van carrying children, killing two of them. In all, 10 people, including the suspect, were sent to hospitals.

WHIO-TV reports that Lt. Col. Eric Henderson says the suspect fled when officers responded Monday evening to a report of a stabbing on Xenia Avenue. He says the suspect abandoned that vehicle, fled on foot and at some point stole a Riverside police SUV.

Henderson says police then got a call about a crash near the Dayton Metro Library, where officers arrested the suspect. The SUV had crashed into at least two occupied vehicles.
