COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The latest developments in the attack on a Swedish school by a knife-wielding masked man (all times local):

4:10 p.m.

A police official in Sweden says a man who killed two people and wounded two others in a deadly knife attack at a school has died.

Police spokesman Thord Haraldsson said Thursday the attacker died after being shot by police who responded to the school in Trollhattan, near Goteborg, Sweden's second-largest city.

He told a news conference that the masked attacker knocked on the doors to two classrooms and stabbed the people who opened the doors.

One teacher and one student were killed and another student and another teacher were badly injured. Police have not yet given a motive.

3:15 p.m.

A police spokeswoman says a second victim has died in the attack on a school in southern Sweden by a knife-wielding man.

Police spokeswoman Maria Randsalu said Thursday that the second victim is a male student, but didn't provide further details. Students fled from the Kronan school in Trollhattan, near Goteborg, Sweden's second-largest city, after the attack in a cafe near the school just after 10 a.m., police said.

Police arrived to find one male teacher already dead and two students, aged 11 and 15, and another male teacher wounded. The second victim was one of those students.
