Man shot dead on cycle path

A 40 year-old man was shot on a cycle path in the southern Stockholm suburb of Farsta on Saturday afternoon. Police have put out an arrest warrant for a man, who is suspected of murder.

Police identified their suspect following interviews with people known to the victim and witnesses that arrived later at the scene. Several apartments in the area have been searched but the suspected killer has yet to be found.

“We know who the suspect is and it is just a question of time before we arrest him”, Gunnar Samuelesson of the local police told DN.

Police were unwilling to release personal details of the murdered man.
