Terror in Sweden: 5 wounded in shooting attack – Police tell public not to worry

Swedish police say several people were injured when shots were fired Monday in the terror nest of Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city.

Swedish news agency TT said the incident happened in Malmo just after 8 p.m. and quoted the city’s police department saying “there is no reason for the public to worry.”

Malmo police said five men were wounded.


Local media quoted witnesses saying they heard what sounded like 15 to 20 shots and people being carried to private cars that drove off “as fast as possible.”

Police said security at a hospital was stepped up after the gunfire was reported. The statement said officers had information that “one person had been taken to hospital in a private car.”

Feuds between Muslim gangs fighting over territory have become more common in major Swedish cities in recent years.
