Stockholm: A van drove into a crowd of people outside a busy department store in central Stockholm on Friday, injuring people, police said. A Reuters report said at least two people were killed in the incident.

“Police received a call from SOS alarm that a person in a vehicle has injured other people on Drottninggatan,” police wrote on Twitter.

The incident occurred just before 1300 GMT at corner of the Ahlens department store and the city’s biggest pedestrian street, above-ground from Stockholm’s central subway station.

Thick smoke was rising from the scene, but police have yet to confirm the information. Video images showed an area blocked off by police and crowds gathering around the police cordon.
