Six people are now confirmed dead in Finland, after a multiple shooting at a small town outside Helsinki.
 
A man dressed in black fired at random in the Sello shopping mall at Espoo. Local media named him as 43-year-old Ibrahim Shkupolli. A woman believed to be his ex-wife was later found dead at a nearby house; another body was then discovered, believed to be the gunman.
 
Four people died at the mall. Armed police sealed off the area and public transport was diverted away.
 
Gun ownership is a controversial issue in Finland. Twenty people have been killed in shootings at two schools in the past two years.
