STOCKHOLM – Swedish police on Thursday in Stockholm, confirmed that several people were killed in a restaurant shooting in the Swedish city of Gothenburg on Wednesday.
Police said there was no indication that the shooting was terror-related, rather a gang-related shooting.
Ulla Brehm, Police Spokeswoman, said there was absolutely nothing suggesting the attack has anything to do with terrorism.
She said there were multiple deaths in the shooting in which automatic weapons were used.
Brehm said the area on Hisingen, an island off Gothenburg, had seen a lot of gang violence and that was a likely explanation for the shooting.
“We have had a targeted police operation in this area because we have gang crime there.
“There have been shootings in the past,” she said. (Reuters/NAN)
