At about 5 pm local time (2 pm GMT) a young man entered the shopping mall with a guitar case where a petrol chainsaw was concealed. Taking it out, the 18-year-old wounded a young woman. Besides, the investigators said he used an axe for the attack.
The latest reports say that one young woman was killed and one more was wounded and taken to hospital. The attacker was detained. Police are working on the crime scene.
