Three people have been arrested in Borlänge in central Sweden after a man in his twenties was run over and killed after two groups clashed in the town on Friday night.

A second person sustained minor injuries after being hit by the same car.

Around 15 people were involved in the fight in the centre of the town, 200 kilometres north-west of Stockholm.

Police arriving at the scene found the victim lying on the street after a car drove straight into the crowd at the height of the brawl.

“There was a fight between two gangs after a liquor deal got out of control,” said police spokesman Crister Nelefledt.

Police said two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder, with an alternative charge of manslaughter, while a third person is suspected of aggravated assault.
