From The Guardian:
Media reports aired amateur videos showing a man firing several shots near a station using a large weapon, and Belgian broadcasters said the two victims were Swedes. The Swedish national football team had been scheduled to play Belgium at Heysel Stadium later in the evening, about 3 miles (5km) away but the match was cancelled.
A video claiming responsibility for the shooting was circulating on social media, in which a man speaks Arabic, a source close to the case said.
A police spokesperson, Ilse Vande Keere, said officers arrived at the scene and sealed off the immediate neighbourhood. She declined to elaborate on the circumstances of the shooting.
The threat level in the Belgian capital was raised to level 4, and in the rest of the country to level 3.
“I have just offered my sincere condolences to [Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson] following tonight’s harrowing attack on Swedish citizens in Brussels. Our thoughts are with the families and friends who lost their loved ones. As close partners the fight against terrorism is a joint one,” Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo said on social media.

Charles Michel, the president of the European Council, said: “The heart of Europe is hit by violence. My heart goes out to the families of the victims of the deadly attack in the centre of Brussels. My support for the Belgian authorities and security services who are monitoring the situation.”
Belgium reportedly elevated its terror alert to the highest level in the wake of the Islamic attack.
The suspected shooter uploaded video on Facebook claiming he’s a “fighter for Allah” who killed “three Swedes,” according to Belgian publication Nieuwsblad.
