A high school in Vasastan in central Stockholm has been evacuated after a suspected threat.

– It is vacated, it is not us who vacated it, but it is a decision that the school itself has made. I don’t question that, says police spokesperson Daniel Wikdahl.

The police are on site to ensure that there is nothing dangerous at the scene, and are investigating the incident as a serious unlawful threat.

Earlier on Wednesday, the police were sent to a high school in Östermalm in Stockholm, after receiving information that could be interpreted as a threat. Nothing dangerous was found at the scene.

– They are two completely different schools, two completely separate events. We see no connection between these, says Daniel Wikdahl.

The incident connected to the school in Östermalm is also being investigated as a serious illegal threat.
