Sagamihara Stabbing: What really happened?

Sagamihara, Japan: #PrayForJapan was trending on Twitter the whole day today. I thought there was an earthquake again in Japan, or another terrorist attack after a series of such in other countries this 2016.

So, what really happened?

Named as suspect was Satoshi Uematsu, a former employee of the very same facility where those 19 people were being cared for along with 130 others.

What a senseless and awful attack! I feel disgusted hearing again such news of many people losing their lives.
