  • Shots were heard close to a police station

Police stand next to a cordon in central Malmo, southern Sweden, Monday, June 18, 2018.

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 honor, conflicts which have become more common in major Swedish cities in recent years. Investigators suggest that automatic weapons were used, and are searching for a dark vehicle that was seen leaving the scene at high speed, Aftonbladet reports. At approximately 21:00, an as of yet unidentified man is said to have shot at a crowd at the centre of the city. We do not want to see that.

Police have sealed off a main street running through Sweden's third largest city as officers hunt for the shooter.

There were no indications the incident was related to terrorism, and the police had made no arrests, said force spokeswoman Maya Forstenius.

The gunman opened fire Monday night and shot off at least 15 rounds before escaping from the scene, police said.

They also declined to give any detail of the victims although reports said several of them were well known to the police.
