19-year-old shot dead in Stockholm

A 19-year-old man died early on Sunday morning after a shooting incident in southern Stockholm. Another man, aged 26, was seriously injured.

It is not clear exactly where the shooting happened and there do not appear to have been any witnesses.

“At around midnight someone called the police after having heard shots fired near a gravel pit in Tullinge. We’ve been searching there but we haven’t found anything,” said police spokesman Mats Nylén.

“There’s nothing to indicate that these incidents were related. They were three hours apart.”

Officers are now trying to gather information about the shooting. Clothing has been taken from both men, who were previously known to the police.

“Personally I won’t be surprised if it turns out that the reason for the shooting was some kind of criminal activity,” said Mats Nylén.
