Finish police have confirmed that a sixth body found in the Helsinki suburb of Espoo is that of the suspect in a shopping mall shooting spree Thursday morning that left four people dead. Police say the suspect killed himself.
"It is confirmed that the sixth victim is the suspect," Chief Inspector Jukka Kaski told a
news conference, adding that the suspect was found dead in his home.
Four people were shot and killed when a gunman opened fire at Espoo’s Sello Shopping Centre. A police statement said the shopping centre victims were three men and a woman and that a fifth body, that of a woman, was later found in an Espoo house.
Some observers have attributed such incidents to the fact that the country has the world’s third-largest gun ownership rate.
