One Dead and Ten Injured In Sword Attack At Finnish School

At least one person has died and another ten have been injured in Kuopio, eastern Finland after a suspect brought a sword to a local college and began attacking people.

Local police say they were called to the scene at around 12:29 in the afternoon and were able to subdue the suspect after discharging their firearms less than ten minutes later, Finnish broadcaster YLE reports. 

Among the injured are a police officer and the suspect himself who is said to be a native-born Finnish citizen and is also said to have possessed a firearm at the time of the attack.

Hospital Medical Director Heikki Miettinen noted that while the victims suffer from various kinds of cuts, none are in life-threatening condition and are expected to make a full recovery.

So far no motive has been explained in regards to the attack, but the BBC has claimed that the first person to be attacked by the suspect was a teacher at the college.
