Sweden three dead in 12 hours in gang war

Sweden three dead in 12 hours in gang war Three people died in shootings and explosions in less than 24 hours in Sweden, amid a wave of violence linked to gang warfare that now claims victims almost daily.

According to the police, the first shooting took place in a wealthy suburb south of Stockholm shortly before 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday: a young man was shot dead near a sports field where he was training with children.

A homicide investigation has been opened.

“Innocent people with no connection to organized crime, including several children who attended their training, were forced to once again witness a ruthless shooting in which a man was shot dead,” Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson reacted to the TV4 channel. .

“Crying children in soccer uniforms and very worried parents. My thoughts are with all these children, their mothers and fathers. These reckless killers will not stop shooting themselves and others until we stop them,” he added.

And during the night of Wednesday to Thursday, an explosion occurred on the outskirts of the university city of Uppsala, resulting in the death of a 25-year-old woman. Five houses were damaged, police added on their website.
