A pupil was killed and two others were seriously injured when a 12-year-old boy armed with a handgun opened fire at a school in Finland as students arrived back after their Easter break. Police said the victim had died at the scene, the Viertola school in Vantaa, a suburb to the north of the capital, Helsinki. The injured pupils had been taken to hospital. The suspect had been arrested in a nearby suburb but under Finnish law cannot be remanded in custody because they are under 15 years old. They will instead be taken into the care of social services. Police said they had retrieved the weapon, which was licensed, with the permit belonging to a relative of the suspect.
