An armed gang of 15 men stormed a gambling den in Gothenburg, fired two shots in the air and made off with 100,000 kronor.

13 people were gathered in the premises of a local club in Kortedala in Gothenburg when the robbers struck early on Saturday morning. The large amount of money seized was due to a gambling evening being held in the premises.

Police reported several hours after the robbery that no one had yet been apprehended for the crime.

Despite shots being fired no one was hurt in the attack.
