Two men were taken to hospital with leg injuries after a shooting incident at a photo studio in central Stockholm on Friday afternoon.

Police were called to Norra Stationsgatan in the Vasastan area of the city shortly after 3pm after three masked men staged a raid on a photo studio. The men left the premises after stealing a small safe.

"Something went wrong during the men's stay on the premises and two men were shot," police spokesman Joakim Caryll told TT.

Police said that one of the men was shot in the thigh, while the other received wounds to the calf. Both were taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Witnesses say they saw three masked men fleeing the scene after loading the safe into an old, red Audi.

"There were a lot of witnesses to the incident as the photo studio is located beside a shopping centre," said Caryll.

A number of police units have been called in to aid in the search. Witnesses are being asked to make contact with the police.

"If anybody sees the suspected vehicle they should call 112. As the men were armed, we are treating them as dangerous," said Caryll.
