Truck crashes into Stockholm store, killing three

A truck crashed into an upscale department store in central Stockholm on Friday, and Swedish radio said the crash had killed three people.

Swedish broadcaster SVT said, shots had been fired at the scene and the Swedish news agency TT said several people were rushed away in ambulances.

Live television footage on Friday showed smoke coming out of the upscale Ahlens department store on Drottninggatan Street, which the truck smashed into. The department store is part of Sweden-wide chain. The building includes several stores at street-level.

“We stood inside a shoe store and heard something … and then people started to scream,” witness Jan Granroth told the Aftonbladet daily. “I looked out of the store and saw a big truck.”

Swedish police confirmed that a truck drove into people and the store but could not confirm the reports of shots fired. Police said in a statement “there are reports of injured but we have no details on how many and how serious.”
