A secondary school in Nacka east of Stockholm will be closed on Wednesday after a social media rumor of a school shooting, reports TV4 News

"The probability that the threat will be translated into action is deemed to be low and the post does not seem to have been spread very widely but we take it seriously and will therefore put in a home study day on Wednesday," writes the school's principal in an email to the parents, according to TV4.

The police will be watching the school area and on Tuesday security guards will be brought in.
