One shot dead and two injured in Malmö

Police received a call just before 8pm on Monday evening reporting gunfire in the area and when they arrived on the scene they found three men, all in their mid-twenties, with shot wounds.

One was in a worse state than the others.

“Police started CPR on the spot but the person died,” said Helena Ralmark of the Malmö police to news agency TT.

The other two sustained less serious injuries in hand and leg respectively.

According to police, 15 people witnessed the incident. They described the weapon as “resembling a pistol” and said the perpetrator was wearing a mask.

“The shooter was wearing something resembling a Halloween mask, a mask that looked like the face of an old man,” Ralmark told TT.

Two hours after the incident, police had not made any arrests and there were no suspects. The three victims were all previously known to police.

The shooting took place on an industrial estate where police previously have raided several illegal nightclubs.

@Svenskanoob

Malmö isn't to bad to live in if you know where to stay away from.

Don't go in to Rosengård especially at night, don't go in to industrial estates at night and generally stay away from any areas considered "problem areas"

I have been living in Malmö for 3 years now and have never really had any problems living in the city centre. Its no different from living in any english town/city to be honest.

Try finding a place around Folkets Park, Trianglen area they are not bad areas and on the whole we have little problems. *touch wood*

Though I won't deny we are looking at moving out of malmö as soon as we have the money to buy a place.

malmö is a horrible place and is getting worse and worse. Its the first place that refugees that are illegally in europe claim refugee status here in Sweden. there is no useful policing between dk and se on the train and in fact, you can get from one to the other without paying at times. all these people that say its not that bad and in the same breathe say they are looking to leave, what a bunch of B. S.

Canuk its no different from most towns in the UK.

And there is usually always ticket checks on the trains between DK and SE, at least when I travel on it daily (morning and night). Though agreed about the policing, you sometimes get the Tull on board but they never seem to do much nor have the ability to do much however theres a side affect of being in Schlagen (I have no idea if i'm spelling it right).

There are nice places in side Malmö; near folkets park, västa hamnen, and a few other places like out towards St Benstorp that we would consider living in if it had a blasted trainstation or working busses.

@kalyissa #its no different from most towns in the UK#, When you say most towns in the UK, which ones do you mean, because Malmö is certainly not like most of the towns I know eg;, Newquay, Colchester, Doncaster, Scarborough, Grimsby, Newark, Barnsley, Chorley etc.

It may be similar to certain areas of large cities, but even Liverpool has an ethnic European population of almost 95%, the only place remotely like Malmö would be the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham, & Brent, & cities Leicester, Blackburn, Slough.
