Shooter (12) cites bullying as a motive for fatal shooting in Finnish school.

The 12-year-old suspect in a fatal school shooting in Finland is said to have been bullied in the past. Finnish media report this. Two girls are still seriously injured in hospital.

President Alexander Stubb has declared a day of national mourning.

After the incident at the Viertola school, the teenager was arrested a little further by officers and was placed with the social services due to his young age. He was allegedly bullied at school in the past, Finnish media report.

There was nothing more that could be done for one of the victims – a boy who was shot dead, the local police said. Two girls who were also hit by the hail of bullets are still in critical condition in hospital. One of them has dual nationality, that of Finland and Kosovo.

Numerous candles have been placed in sympathy at the affected school, which also provides special education. The school was also guarded for some time by heavily armed units just to be on the safe side. The broad educational institution has a total of about eight hundred students.
