Several people are feared dead, with more injured, after a man opened fire at a college in western Finland.

Police said the gunman, thought to be a 22-year-old student, was then disarmed, but local media say he shot himself.

He was carrying an automatic weapon and wearing a ski mask when he entered the college in Kauhajoki, reports said.

Media reports said the shootings began Tuesday just before 1100 local time (0800 GMT), when some 200 students were in the building.
