Breaking: 2 dead, 1 injured in Swedish IKEA knife attack

ikeaA man is in custody following a knife attack at a Vasteras, Sweden IKEA store, about an hour outside of Stockholm. There is little more beyond this brief report in Reuters, posted across the BBC, IBT and other international outlets within the last half hour.

“Police said they had received a call reporting injuries at the IKEA store at around 1300 CET (0700 ET).

“We found a man and a woman who had knife injuries and who later died of their wounds,” Vastmanland police said in a statement.

Another person was seriously injured.

The police said they had taken a man into custody suspected of murder.”
