Stockholm - Police in Sweden have shot and killed a knife-wielding man after he allegedly stabbed three people, including an elderly woman who died from her injuries.

Police say the victims were stabbed in the late morning on Friday in different locations in the south-western town of Varberg. Two men who were attacked survived, but the woman, born in 1928, died from her injuries.

Police say they shot the suspect when he refused to put down his knife, even after they fired warning shots. He died after being taken to a local hospital.

The man was not identified but police said he was born in 1989.

The motive for the rampage was not immediately clear.
