EDMONTON — A man who once threatened to kill his neighbour with a combat bow was arrested Friday after a deadly stabbing spree in Edmonton.

Police took Jayme Joshua Pasieka, 29, into custody after a brief manhunt sparked by the slaying of two people in a west-end warehouse.

Four more people were injured just after 2 p.m. at the Loblaws warehouse in an industrial zone.

Police say a man armed with two knives and wearing body armour had stormed into the building. Cops say he was an employee at the warehouse.

Pasieka was taken into custody just after 5 p.m.

At least three police cars and two unmarked police SUVs were spotted in the area, as well as officers in tactical gear.

A 2010 psychiatric assessment found Pasieka to be "normal" before he was sentenced to 15 months' probation for setting a heart-shaped fire in his neighbourhood and uttering death threats while holding a combat bow.
