Three teenage girls born in 1995 reported that they heard gunshots and saw a man with a weapon in the Rosengård neighbourhood some time between 9 and 9.30pm.

Police have found empty shell casing from a loaded weapon at the location.

The three girls reported that they came to Rosengård by bus, got off at a bus stop near central Rosengård.

They then went to a kiosk where they purchased some items and then stood and talked.

They then saw a unknown male run past, heard three shots and later saw a person standing in a bush with a gun in his hand. They did not feel threatened.

Police confirmed the shooting at a press conference in Malmö on Monday morning, but it is not clear whether anyone was hit.

Story continues below…

It also emerged at the press conference that two men were arrested for weapons offences at the Triangle shopping center in Malmö on Friday afternoon. One of them had a gun in his posession when he was arrested and he was remanded in custody over the weekend.

It is unclear whether this arrest has any connection with the recent spate of unsolved shootings targeting Malmö residents of immigrant backgrounds.

But!!!! the Ex gang members are going to find him, aren't they???

Wouldn't be suprised if it's an immigrant trying to stir up anti SD emotions.

its very sad!!! Islamization should be smothered in Sweden not gathered..You see places where they are gathered they try to impose their Sharia laws...and that is dangerous..for example I saw recently a group of Immi boys(muslims) teasing and

and abusing a blond girl calling her names because they think she is a hooker.

Maybe she was and maybe she slep with some of them.

But the way they behaved is unexceptable at all!!! I was disgusted it was like some iran or iraq...where a poppulation judge the personals... very sad

Dear Sam:

In Islam you can't fornicate. to sleep with a woman she must be your wife. So please don't connect their actions to Islam.

In Islam: Prophet Mohamed said: "Those who would do unjust to the people of the book (Jews and Christians) will be my enemy on the day of judgment."

and this rule is general for every one but Jews and Christians are more special to us because of their believe in God, Allah, Allohim or the Father.

Please read about the rules of Islam first, from Islamic sources, because if religion is judged because of the act of the followers their will be not a single good religion even atheism. so you will be neither religious nor atheist!!!.

by the way, you do have Swedish people of northern origin in prisons, don't you? or are they all just immigrants and Muslims?. does this make the whole Swedish population a bad seed.

Pay no attention to people like SAM1. They are like warts, in time they will just fall off themselves.

The crap they spew non stop, is not really taken seriously by 99.9% of the people.

Its fashionable now to bash Islam. These people are just repackaged racists. The same people who killed millions of Jews using the same propaganda.

Peace be upon you.

What an odd way of saying the girls were 15 … unless the actual year was relevant ?

So are you saying that the blond girl was not being verbally abused? What is the dominant ethnic population of Rosengard?
00:50 November 2, 2010 by MTH
ahmed, but is true. The other day I was intimidated by a group of middle east youngsters just because they thought i was looking at them, and they started "what are you looking at" in an aggresive way, just to intimidate and bother me. Your people is aggresive and your people is the one who brings trouble into europe.

Dear Cowboy:

God morgon, and peace be upon you and whole Sweden.

Dear MTH:

I know my manners. three times till now I have been sitting on a bench at a buss stop and a very old man or women came. I simply left my seat and asked them to sit down.

And you know what; that is what my people do all over Arabia. It's considered shame if an old person is standing while the youngsters are sitting. and this is preached in Islam

Prophet Mohamed peace be upon him says: "It's not a muslim that who don't have mercy for the children and respect for the elders."

I have never seen someone writing: I once saw a Muslim leaving his seat for an elder person. and I am not talking about me only. I don't believe of course that I am the only Arab with morals and manners here of course. but your eyes will only see what your mind is convinced it's the truth. If you saw me doing that the thought that this is an Arab with manners will not pass your mind because you are always expecting the worst out of us, and this is kind of your problems not ours.

and for your last sentence: If you could answer my previous question about prisons with, No we don't have Swedes of Northern origin in prisons. I could then agree with you that we are the plague of Europe. but the only thing I convinced with: 'some are devils, some are angels and most of us are something in between.'

If you read "the rise and fall of the third Reich" you will see that during 30's there were lots of stories of Jews troubling young German ladies, seducing them and even forcing them to practice prostitution.

The immigrant (or the other) disturbing "our girls" is a sensitive and old story, each time told in a new shape to make "us" feel "us" against those who are not "one of us".

@ahmed1234: Not everyone has manners, doesn't matter whether they are muslim, hindu, christian or athiest. Just because you show respect doesn't mean the other 99.9% show the same respect.

If you live in an area where there are a majority of immigrants, then you can see the disrespect they have for their enviroment. Not all people be them Arabs, Asians, Europeans or martians have morals & manners

@Alf Grnett:

The 99.9% estimation that you have, does not come from a scientific study. It is just a wrong estimation with dangerous consequences.

The Lasermann (German-Swiss immigrant) had also a similar estimation, when he decided to shoot just an immigrant (after his plan to hunt criminal immigrants didn't work). When he shot immigrants (maybe assuming that 99.9% of them are criminals), he killed or wounded people which 99.9% of them were not criminal.

To the racists and xenophobes who claim that crime and rape didn't exist in Sweden in "the good old days before Arab immigration".

No lads, instead we had Sven Svenne in his stuga getting ratfaced on moonshine and then beating up his wife and kids. Paedophilia and homophobia didn't exist of course, back in the good old days...not. Nor murder, bank robbery, car theft, drug crimes, etc etc. Each and every Swede that has ever been born is a law-abiding citizen who never drinks and drives or fiddles his taxes.

What a bunch of baloney.

SD claim that the "rape rate has gone up" but the truth is this is because women are far more likely to report it that 20 years ago, and because the courts are far more likely to convict the rapist, plus there is less stigma attached to being a rape victim. Of course, in the good old days when Pelle raped his wife it was filed under domestic abuse or kept under wraps.

And another fact is that reported violent crime has actually been going down in Sweden, although it gets far more publicity in the media of course...especially if the perpetrator is a foreigner. How convenient for the rabble rousers.

Remember John Hron?...beaten up by nazis = SD and dumped in a lake to drown. Or the African guy who had his head used as a football the same year...the list is endless.

PS...Notorious Swedish mass murderers, rapists and serial killers

Mattias Flink (incarcerated)

John Ausonius (incarcerated)

Helge Fossmö (incarcerated)

Tomas Quick (incarcerated)

Anders Eklund (incarcerated)

Jackie Arklöv (kom som adoptivbarn till Sverige som 3-åring)

Tore Hedin (died 1952)

Niklas Lindgren (incarcerated)

Sweden is one of the biggest weapon producer and seller in the world.

This is like a boomerang.

One can not expect to be still in peace after helping some other to terrorize and destabilize some part of the world.

World is small.

Selling weapon on one hand and giving Nobel peace prize on the other hand. This a Swedish way of public relations but it collapsed already.

I can recommend to those who like very much to blame to others for any problem: First you should look at your country and its history. Start from the owners of Ikea or experiments being done on disable people during 60's in Swedish clinics for example.
