The death toll from an assault near the Savon Ammattiopisto, a school in Kuopio, a town in eastern Finland, is of at least one dead and 10 injured. The local media reported it, stating that the person responsible would be stopped.
It would be a student who was also seriously injured. Unlike what had transpired initially, the attacker did not act by firing with a gun, but extracted a sword from his bag and began to stab some students of the technical institute.
“The policemen used their weapon. An attacker was arrested. The wounded were evacuated.” the police said in a note.
