Two teachers killed at Swedish high school, student arrested

STOCKHOLM (AP) – Two teachers were killed by a student at a high school in southern Sweden, police said yesterday.

The 18-year-old student was arrested at the scene on Monday in Malmo. The victims were two women in their 50s, police said.

The suspect wasn’t previously known to the police and had no criminal record, and police didn’t disclose how the teachers were killed. A motive hasn’t been established.

Malmo Police Chief Petra Stenkula said officers arrived and found the suspect and two victims on the third floor of the downtown Malmo Latin School 10 minutes after they were alerted, adding that the situation was then “under control”.
