Not many details yet, but I heard about it because I already had a friend out there checking in that he was okay,

A lorry has driven into a store in central Stockholm, killing at least three people, Swedish media say.

Shots have also reportedly been fired.

Swedish police said a number of people were injured, and they are treating it as terrorism.

The incident occurred on Drottninggatan (Queen Street), one of the city's major pedestrian streets, just before 15:00 local time (13:00 GMT).

No

The article has updated a great deal since I first posted it. My friends in Stockholm were all stranded due to the streets being largely locked down - their employer managed to arrange for food and cabs for them throughout the day.

4 dead, 1 arrest that appears to not actually be the driver.
