According to Aftonbladet, police have confirmed that people were injured with a sharp object. The incident is being investigated as an attempted murder.

Mr. Klarin added: ‘It is clear that they used some form of sharp object, but I can not say exactly what.

‘We cannot rule out that more people have been injured. [The area] has been blocked off and the police have a large presence at the [scene].

‘The person was arrested fairly immediately, a few minutes after we received the alarm.’

Police have also cordoned off an area next to a parking garage that is suspected to be the crime scene and officers are searching the area, STV reports.
