Bullying was the reason for Tuesday’s deadly gun attack at a school in Finland, in which a 12-year-old boy lost his life, Finnish police said, as quoted by Sky News.

The suspect, also a 12-year-old boy, was detained and taken into custody after Tuesday morning’s attack at the Viertola school in Vantaa, near Helsinki.

Two other 12-year-old students were also shot and are seriously injured.

“During interrogations, the suspect said he was the target of bullying, and this information was also confirmed in the preliminary police investigation”it is stated in a press release.

It appears the suspect and victims were in the same class. At the time of the attack, some of the children hid behind the benches, but others saw what happened.

One student died and two others were seriously injured in an armed attack at a school in Finland on Tuesday morning. The police announced that all three victims were 12 years old and that the alleged perpetrator of the armed attack, another 12-year-old child, was arrested.

According to the police, the suspect fled after the attack and was detained “calmly” on the other side of a river, in a neighborhood in the north of the Finnish capital. The weapon with which he committed the attack was with him.

Prime Minister Petteri Orpo lamented a deeply disturbing attack and said he was thinking of the victims, their families and the people at the school.

Vantaa has approximately 240,000 inhabitants and is the fourth largest city in Finland.

The Viertola school has 800 students between the ages of 7 and 16 and 90 employees.
