Knife attack at high school leaves 2 women dead

The victims were in their 50s, school staff. Local media reported that the suspect called an emergency number to inform him of his whereabouts and laid down his weapon, admitting to killing two people. The killer was carrying a knife and an ax.

In a preliminary statement, police said that two people were injured out of 50 people present at the scene when the incident happened. Authorities said the two victims “were taken to hospital but did not survive”. The police were alerted at 5:15 pm on the same day and the first police patrol immediately arrived at the school, arrested the suspect and found two others injured.

The motive for the incident is not yet known. Authorities believe the suspect acted alone.

In January 2022, a 16-year-old man was arrested for injuring a classmate and teacher in the town of Kristianstad, also in southern Sweden. This case is linked to a similar attack in August 2021 in the town of Eslov, about 50km away, when a student attacked a school employee. In October 2015, three people were killed in a racistly motivated attack at a school in the western town of Trollhattan.
