— -- One person was killed and one person was injured in a stabbing incident in the German city of Wuppertal-Elberfeld today, according to police.

Wuppertal police are still searching for one or more suspects related to the stabbings.

A police spokeswoman told ABC News that the stabbing had "absolutely nothing to do with a terror attack.”

This marks the second reported stabbing attack in Europe today, as one person was killed in Finland during a stabbing attack that left several others injured.

It also comes one day after a deadly ISIS-claimed attack in Barcelona in which 13 people were killed and at least a hundred others injured after a van plowed into crowds in a busy tourist area.
