Police have confirmed that one man has been arrested and two suspects have been taken in for questioning regarding the crime which shook Sweden yesterday.
A truck drove into the Åhléns department store on Drottningsgatan in the Swedish capital, killing four people and injuring 15.
The man arrested was likely the driver of the hijacked vehicle.
"Yes, it is correct, it is likely him," police spokesman Lars Bystrom told The Associated Press.

The suspect is a 39-year-old from Uzbekistan, according to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
Swedish media outlets are suggesting that the incident may be terrorist-motivated.
"If it is a terrorist attack, and regardless of whether it was carried out by an organisation or a lone perpetrator, the aim of terrorism is to undermine democracy, to sow discord between people so that more people will begin to hate and distrust one another," said Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven.
"But those kinds of acts will never succeed in Sweden. We know that our enemy is this kind of vile murderer – not one another. We will use all of Sweden's strength to track you down."
