Police vans stand guard outside the Sagerska Palace, the official residence of the Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, after a man died inside either by committing suicide or in an accident on Friday.

STOCKHOLM — A man has died inside Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt's residence in Stockholm after either committing suicide or an accident, but the prime minister and his family were safe, police said Friday.

"There are no signs of a crime. We investigate this as a suicide or a work-related accident," Towe Hagg, a police spokeswoman, told Reuters.

Media said the man died of gunshot wounds.

The dead man was not part of the prime minister's personal bodyguards but had full clearance to be in the building. Another official said he was a security guard who worked at the residence.
