One Teacher, Two Students, and Attacker Dead in Stabbing Attack at Swedish School – Attacker Dressed in Black


UPDATED II: 4 Dead including the attacker (still no name released), one teacher, and two students.

UPDATED: A boy and a teacher have died and three others are injured after a knife attack at a school in Trollhättan, western Sweden. A student has told The Local he feared he would be “murdered”.

  • Pupil and teacher dead and three injured in school attack
  • One of two boys, 11 and 15, being treated for serious stab wounds is reported dead
  • 21-year-old attacker seriously injured
  • Student tells The Local his teacher was stabbed
  • ‘If I had not run, I would have been murdered,’ student tells The Local
  • PM Stefan Löfven: ‘A dark day for Sweden’

Various news outlets are stating that the attacker’s “motive is unclear”. Usually that means that the attacker is a Muslim and his motivation was Islam. The Attacker’s identity is still not being released.

The attack took place on Thursday morning at the school, around 75km from Gothenburg, after a man wearing a mask walked into a building on the premises.

Police spokesman Stefan Gustafsson later told Swedish media that the attacker used “several knife-like objects”.

A hospital in Trollhättan confirmed that a teacher died in the incident.

Police later told the TT news agency that one of the two boys, 11 and 15, being treated for serious stab wounds along with a male teacher at Trollhättan hospital had also died. The attacker is also injured.

“The suspect has been shot and is being treated at NÄL (the regional hospital). He is seriously injured and is being operated on,” said hospital spokesperson Niklas Claesson.

    In Sweden, the land of tolerance and equality?

    It’s illegal in Sweden to identify a perp by country of origin or religion.
    In Germany, (I think) you can’t even publish the last name of someone charged
    with a crime.

      Yes, but stupid as those rules are, they’re only rules of convenience, and they are to be discarded whenever they wish. If, for instance, a white Swedish Christian (assuming there are any left) actually attacked a religion of peace enthusiast, you can be damn sure his name, picture and demographic details would be all over the newspapers there. Same with Germany.

      It makes the German media look silly when a perpetrator is identified as Mohammed K. or Abdullah M, which defeats the object of their reticence.

    that gun ban seems to work. another day without a school shooting.

    A Buddhist or a Hindu or perhaps a Catholic monk or it could be an average Joe with family & kids?? Anybody but an adherent to the religion of ‘pieces’.

    Someone mentioned on another site it was a clock he took to school but it turned into a sword. Pretty sure if it is a muzzie he will be found mentally ill because of having to live in an intolerant society which gives him everything he needs. The torture – how do these muzzies cope!

    reports he was not an ethnic swede

    • lolwut?

      Videos of the school population pretty much guarantees that.
      it’s almost entirely immigrants there.

    My wife and I visited Trollhatten a couple of years ago. Lovely place, but in the town there were packs of arab-looking youths roaming around, idle and loud. Cafes, even in the middle of the day, had security guards at their entrances, and the youths would tease and yell at them.

    Update: 3 dead.

    Now, let’s play spot the Swede.. see if you can spot any in the video below.

    Named as Anton Lundin Pettersson (21), however, the source is Aftonbladet which has in the past been untrustworthy.

  • Sweden used to be such a nice, safe place – almost boring, were it not for the super pretty girls. I went there many times in my youth. Now look. Whoever the killer may be, there will be many more like him coming from the Muslim immigrant community, that’s for sure, and once they get started they will copycat each other on and on.
