Newspaper Göteborgs-Posten reported that a masked man, dressed in black, shot another man five times just after 9am on a residential street in central Gothenburg.
The man released two more shots, before jumping on a moped and escaping. A witness told Göteborgs-Posten that he saw the man drop the gun not far from the scene of the crime.
Newspaper Aftonbladet reported that the moped the man was driving was later found. It had been burned. Aftonbladet says the police are tight-lipped about the incident.
The man who was shot has been identified. His relatives have been notified.
“We fled longer back into our apartment and then I went out and looked out the window,” one witness told Aftonbladet.
“His face and chest was bloody and there was a lot of blood on the pavement.”
Newspaper Expressen reports that the man’s partner witnessed the shooting and called the ambulance.
This is the second time in less than two weeks that shots rang out in Gothenburg on an open street and in broad daylight. Police say there is no connection between the two shootings.
The search for the suspect continues.
