Two people have been taken to hospital after what has been labelled a “suspected serious crime” at a school in Malmö.
Fredrik Hemmensjö, Malmö Latin School’s headmaster, described the incident as “absolutely awful”, but there are not yet concrete details on precisely what occurred at the high school.
The headteacher added: “I only know that there is deadly violence at the school.”
He said he was not currently in the area, but that many levels of school management were involved with enquiries.
According to the Swedish television programme TV4 Nyheterna, the incident at the high school is “still ongoing”.
A police spokesperson for the region said the police were looking into what had happened.
It is believed the incident happened just before 5 pm local time on Monday.
The incident was reported through SOS Alarm, which operates Sweden’s emergency services alert line 112.
A number of roadblocks have been established around the area of the school.
