At least four people have been killed and 12 injured after a truck crashed into a department store in central Stockholm, CNN reports. A man reportedly commandeered a stolen beer truck and directed it into a crowd on a busy Stockholm street. The Swedish broadcaster SVT reported that shots were also fired at the scene.
"People started running down the stairs when the fire alarm started, and when we came down to the bottom of the building all we could see was a lot of smoke," one witness who was in the store at the time of the crash told NBC News. Police said Friday that they had arrested someone in connection with the incident.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said that authorities believe the crash was a deliberate "terror attack." Vehicles have been used in several recent terrorist attacks in Europe including in Nice, France, in July 2016, resulting in the deaths of 86 people, and in London last month, when five people were killed and several others injured.
