Posted:

HELSINKI (AP) -- Police in Finland have confirmed that the gunman who killed five people in the town of Espoo committed suicide.

Police superintendent Jukka Kaski says that 43-year-old Ibrahim Shkupolli shot himself at his home in Espoo after going on a rampage that killed his ex-girlfriend, then four other people at a local shopping mall where she also worked.

Police have refused to identify the shooter's nationality, but news reports indicate he was an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo. Kaski says the killer had been living in Finland for several years.
