Two people were killed and five others injured near the provincial legislature in Canada's Quebec on Halloween night.

On Saturday evening, just before 10:30 p.m., police were called to the historic district of Quebec where multiple people had been stabbed.

The suspect was hospitalized after being taken into custody, police say.

Authorities declined to give any information about the two people who were killed.

Quebec City police spokesperson Etienne Doyon told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that the suspect is a man in mid-20s.

Canada's federal public safety minister Bill Blair said on Twitter that his team was closely following what had happened in Quebec City.

'Quebec is waking up after a night of horror. "I offer my condolences to the loved ones of the victims", Quebec Premier François Legault tweeted.

"It's a full moon, it's October 31st". He said some of those injured suffered lacerations he described as serious, but said no one is in life-threatening condition.

Quebec City police advised residents in a tweet to remain inside with their doors locked, and if that was not possible, to avoid the area surrounding Parliament Hill.
