Malmo shooting: Swedish police warn several injured in city centre

Police stand next to a cordon in central Malmo southern Sweden Monday

Four people were wounded in a shooting in Sweden's third biggest city Malmö but their condition was unknown, police said on Monday night.

"There are a lot of police working on the incident", police press officer Fredrik Bratt said.

Malmo police chief Stefan Sinteus told a news conference that the shooting likely was linked to feuding criminal gangs that are fighting over territory and honour, conflicts which have become more common in major Swedish cities in recent years.

Swedish police are now on the scene. A man reportedly open-fired an automatic weapon at a crowd that was celebrating the win of Swedish national soccer team at the 2018 World Cup.

Jonatan Burhoff told Aftonbladet that he saw wounded people being carried to private cars that drove off "as fast as possible". The statement said officers had information that 'one person had been taken to hospital in a private auto'.

Police spokeswoman Maya Forstenius said investigators are looking for a dark vehicle. They also declined to give any detail of the victims although reports said several of them were well known to the police.
