A HIJACKED truck has driven into crowds on a crowded street in central Stockholm, killing at least four people and injuring dozens more.
The Stolen Lorry drove into crowds on Drottninggatan – one of the city’s major pedestrian streets, just before 15:00 local time, before crashing into Åhlens Mall.
According to local media, the incident seems to be a suspected terror attack
The lorry had been hijacked earlier in the day. The police confirmed no explosives were detected on their search.
A witness reported seeing the driver of the truck wearing a mask.
At least two people have been pictured being detained by police – the first at Olof Palmes gata and the other at Klara North Church Street.
Since then, the Aftonbladet newspaper reported that a man arrested in northern Stockholm has admitted responsibility for the attack.
The arrest came hours after a manhunt was launched by police, with a picture of a ‘person of interest’ circulated by officials.
Police were reported another shooter at a second incident in Fridhemsplan – around a 20-minute drive from the first incident.
Stockholm-based journalist Peter Wolodarski said: “It’s a pedestrian area in the main shopping district in central Stockholm so a lot of people would be there on Friday afternoon. There are no vehicles driving at that place normally.
“It’s the same area where we had a terror attack seven years ago where no-one was killed but the suicide bomber died.”
