A knife-wielding man has been shot and killed by police in Sweden after he allegedly stabbed three people, including an elderly woman who died from her injuries.

Police say the victims were stabbed on Sunday morning in different locations in the southwestern town of Varberg.

Two men who were attacked survived, but the woman, in her mid-80s, died from her injuries.

Police say they shot the suspect when he refused to put down his knife, even after they fired warning shots.

He died after being taken to a local hospital.

The man was not identified but police said he was born in 1989.

The motive for the rampage was not immediately clear.
