BRUSSELS (AP) - Belgian prosecutors say the attacker in Liege disarmed police and used their weapons in a shooting rampage.

Spokesman Philippe Dulieu said the man approached two police officers from behind carrying a knife and stabbed them several times. Dulieu says that the attacker "then took their weapons. He used the weapons on the officers, who died." He says that the attacker then shot dead a 22-year-old man in a nearby vehicle. The attacker was later killed by police.  

An official at the Belgian federal prosecutor's office has told The Associated Press that "there are indications" that the shooting in the eastern city of Liege could be a terror attack.
