I just saw the same video on youtube, it looked like he was stabbed as he was entering into a warehouse, but afterwards, where the camera doesn’t show, the killer may have also cleaved his head to finish him off before running off, according to a photo the video showed of the deceased priest with a head injury.  An eyewitness saw from far away that the priest sustained one stab wound and was then trying to run away from the killer.  The video I saw showed the second and fatal stab wound, but it did not show anything after that due to the rest of the scene happening beyond the camera’s view.

I found the video by search terms in Arabic.  It is graphic.

 The slaying of our priest perpetrated by the hands of the one who embraces the faith of the beast. The masjid is the refuge of the fiends & miscreants devoted to the blasphemous mohammed. The mohammedan is nothing more but a defender & champion of savagery.

To add to this, another security video revealed from the inside of the warehouse, but blocked by a vehicle, the killer indeed kept swinging at the priest, then ripped something off the priest and threw it (determined later to be his pectoral cross) before walking away.  A few bystanders were in the warehouse, doing nothing and letting the Islamist loose.
