Shots have been fired at a shopping centre in the town of Espoo, near the capital of Finland, Helsinki.

An eyewitness said at least one person was left lying on the floor after shooting broke out, the national broadcaster YLE said on its website.
Hunting is a popular sport in Finland and gun ownership is a controversial issue.

There have been two school shootings in the past two years that have left 20 people dead. Thursday's shooting reportedly broke out at about 1020 local time (0820 GMT) at the Sello shopping centre.
A witness said an employee of the Prisma grocery store was left lying on the floor of the shop, and that a man dressed in black was seen walking toward the Citymarket store.

Parts of the shopping centre were closed and trains were not stopping at the local railway station, YLE said.
