Three people have been stabbed at a psychiatric care facility in Gothenburg. The suspected perpetrator was shot by the police.

The first alarm that someone had been knifed at the clinic came at around 11:30 AM Saturday morning.

“Police went to the site and found an injured person, as well as the perpetrator, who was armed,” police spokesperson Jenny Widén told Swedish Radio News. “The police were forced to open fire.”

The TT news agency reports that two other injured people were found at the scene.

The victims, two patients and one employee, along with the suspected perpetrator, were taken to the hospital by ambulance. The suspect is reported to have been a patient. According to Sahlgrenska University Hospital altogether two men and two women were injured.

“One man’s injuries are life-threatening,” Katarina Hallingberg of the hospital’s press department tells Swedish Radio News. It’s unclear if the latter is the suspect.
