Security scare in Stockholm Sweden

After working in Portugal, my IT job for a big telecoms company asked me to help set up computers during an office move.   So I had a brief evening to see Stockholm

Sweden is an ultra liberal country, maybe to trusting to outsiders and as a result some cities like Malmo have area with a Muslim majority population and problems with extremism.    Stockholm is quite multicultural, but no where near as much as cities in the UK like London or Birmingham.

This was in June 2017.  Just arriving in the centre of the city to get my hotel and saw this;

This was a few days after the terrorist attack in London Bridge.  So to my utter dismay I wondered what would cause the road to be taped off and so many emergency vehicles to be there.    I went into my hotel which was a block away and texted some of my family telling them they might see something alarming on the news but I am in my room all ok.

I asked the staff and other guests (more British people) and googled search for the next day or so, and I heard nothing what this incident might of been.
