A town councillor and two journalists have been shot dead in a small town in southern Finland.
The women had been at a restaurant and were gunned down as they left.
Police arrested a 23-year-old local man at the scene.
Residents of Imatra are in mourning:“Well, I`m thinking that soon you cannot let your own children walk around here, if things get this bad. This is it for now, a very sad thing,” said a stunned resident.
The suspect was known to the police and had a criminal record, but authorities gave no further details.
