Stockholm - A man, reportedly a security guard, has shot himself dead inside Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt's residence in central Stockholm.

A spokesperson for the prime minister, Markus Friberg, told AP that Reinfeldt was at work at the time, and that he and his family were doing well. Tabloid Aftonbladet said Reinfeldt was visiting the paper's office in Stockholm.

"I can say nothing happened to the prime minister. He was not harmed," Stockholm police spokesperson Lars Bystrom told AP. "And it wasn't one of his bodyguards but some security guard. We do not suspect any crime."
