A man and a woman have been stabbed to death at an IKEA store in Vasteras, in Sweden on Monday, the CNN reported.

A third person, a man, was “very seriously injured” and was sent to hospital, according to police.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, police said but did not provide further details on the possible motives of the attacker.

Sweden's security police which is responsible for investigating suspected terrorist attacks said that they had no reason to be involved in the investigation based on the information they were given about the incident, according to the AP.

The victims were "ordinary shoppers", the BBC quoted the IKEA store manager as telling local newspaper VLT. They were known to one another, police said.

Vasteras is about 120 km west of Sweden’s capital Stockholm.
