Three items that stand out:

1. The stabbing spree only ended when XXXX was shot dead at the scene by an officer who single-handedly pursued him through the mall.
2. POLICE – “It’s obvious to me, it’s obvious to the detectives that that seems to be an area of interest, that the offender had focused on women and avoided the men.”
3. Perp was known to authorities and had “suffered from mental health [issues]” though he had not been prosecuted or charged with any previous criminal offense in the state.

So… a person with a FIREARM stopped the guy with a knife.
Even though he was known to authorities (wonder what the details on that are…) he still had the presence of mind to “avoid the men” and target the women.
