The shooting took place shortly after 10 a.m. local time (9 a.m. Belgian time) in a primary school with about 800 students between 7 and 15 years old in Vantaa, a suburb of Helsinki. According to Finnish media, three children were injured and have since been taken to a nearby hospital.

A suspect was quickly arrested. It is also said to be a minor, although it is not clear whether it also concerns a student from the same school. There is currently no clarity about his or her motive.
