HYVINKAA, Finland, Feb. 28 (UPI) — A teenager who opened fire from a rooftop in suburban Helsinki, Finland, killing two people and injuring seven, was sentenced to life in prison Thursday.

Eero Hiltunen, 19, was found guilty in Hyvinkaa District Court of murder, attempted murder and causing grave danger in the May shooting, YLE, the Finnish Broadcasting Corporation reported.
