A truck drove into pedestrians on a major shopping and tourist street in Stockholm and then crashed into an upscale department store on Friday, causing multiple injuries and fatalities. Police have not confirmed the number of deaths, but Swedish media outlets are reporting that at least three people were killed.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said one person has been arrested in connection to the attack, The Associated Press reports. However, Swedish police reportedly contradicted that, saying no one was in custody.
Löfven also said there are indications the truck hit pedestrians as "a terror attack," Reuters reported. But Radio Sweden reported that the Swedish Security Service says there is no confirmation the incident was terrorism.
Police confirmed that the vehicle struck people but said they had no details on the number injured or extent of their injuries. Authorities also said there are unconfirmed reports of gunfire.
The incident occurred on Drottninggatan, or Queen Street, a popular walking destination lined with shops. The location of the crash was a pedestrian-only section of the street, according to Radio Sweden.
