Finnish TV: Gunman fires shots in shopping mall
HELSINKI — Finland’s state broadcaster reports that a gunman has fired shots in a shopping mall in Espoo, the country’s second largest city.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or deaths, though Yle reports that a witness said he saw one mall worker lying on the floor covered in blood.
The witness says a man dressed in black began shooting randomly on the second floor of the mall.
The broadcaster says the shooting began early Thursday and people were evacuated from the shopping center.
