"Law enforcement and hospital officials say the victims suffered cuts and slash wounds from a sabre-like weapon. The man was also carrying a gun, but police said they did know whether he fired it," YLE reports.
Officials say the suspect also started a fire at the scene, and that "carefully constructed" incendiary devices were discovered upon a search of his residence.
