UPDATE: Three dead in knife attack in Guam

Update:

GUAM (AP) - Officials in Guam say a third person has died after being hit by a car during a rampage in the U.S. territory's tourist district that left two others dead and 11 others injured.

Spokesman Tony Muna of the Guam Visitors Bureau said that a 51-year-old man taken to Guam Memorial Hospital in critical condition died Thursday morning, Guam time.

Muna says authorities are not immediately releasing his name while a complaint filed against 21-year-old Chad Ryan De Soto is updated. De Soto, of Tamuning, is accused of plowing into several people with his gray Toyota Yaris late Tuesday as he drove onto a sidewalk and into a convenience store at the Outrigger hotel in the Tumon district.

Authorities say he then got out of his car and started stabbing people he came across.

Muna says the 51-year-old victim was hit by De Soto's car.

Original Story:

GUAM (AP) - A man accused of killing two Japanese visitors and injuring a dozen others after crashing his car and stabbing people in a major tourist district in Guam has been arrested.

Authorities said Wednesday they've arrested and charged Chad Ryan Desoto of Tamuning on two counts of murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.

Guam police spokesman A.J. Balajadia says officers responded Tuesday night to a report of a man driving a Toyota Yaris onto a sidewalk and striking seven tourists at a shopping area at the Outrigger Guam Resort.

Investigators say the driver continued on the sidewalk, crashing into the wall of a convenience store. He then left his car and started stabbing people.

A Japanese Foreign Ministry official says local police told the Japanese consulate 14 Japanese were taken to the hospital, and two had died.
