A man who had been refused entry into a restaurant in Gothenburg on Sunday returned shortly afterwards and released a round of bullets inside the establishment, near Wavrinskys Plats in Guldheden, just outside the city centre.

Nobody was injured.

Anna Rosenberg, a police spokeswoman, said the man "forced the staff to the ground and shot several bullets. He aimed at the interior decor."

The man then escaped in a car. He had been turned away from the restaurant a short while earlier.
