Finnish tabloid Ilta-Sanomat said five women and one man had been injured.

The man has been taken into custody after being shot in the leg, police say.

"The government is closely following the events in Turku and the ongoing police operation".

A young boy and elderly woman are also said to have been involved, the Tarun Sanomat reported, adding that at least one person has died.

Eyewitnesses report hearing one or more gunshots, and seeing at least one person lying, apparently lifeless at Puutori.

Several people were attacked by a knife-wielding man in downtown Turku on Friday afternoon, according to police in south-west Finland.

People have been warned to stay away from the city centre.

"Police shot the suspected perpetrator in the legs", police wrote on Twitter.

Finnish police are reinforcing security at Helsinki Airport and train stations following the Turku stabbings.
