The 26-year-old man shot in the head by Swedish police in connection with a jewellery store robbery in Södertäjle last week died in hospital on Wednesday morning.

The man, who had been in critical condition since being taken to hospital following the shooting, died at 8.55am, according to the police.

"The Police Authority in Stockholm County regrets the loss, and expresses its deep respect for the family's sorrow," police wrote in a statement on their website.

The man's death means the investigation into how police reacted during the heist shifts from one of causing bodily harm to one of causing another's death.

@ The Local
It has not yet been established if the dead man was a "jewel thief". Better editing please.
