MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Swedish police shot a man who attacked a school with a sword in a town in western Sweden, the Goteborgs Posten newspaper reported Thursday.
The suspect was shot by police and is in a serious condition.
Two of the five people injured after a man attacked a school with a sword in western Sweden have died, according to the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.
Earlier in the day, the perpetrator, wearing a mask, attacked the school with a sword. An adult and four children were injured, according to local media. Some media outlets claim that the suspect was wielding a knife, not a sword.
A neighboring school was on alert amid the situation, and students were held inside.
