"I saw a dead person lying on the ground," a witness told the local Helsingsborgs-Dagblad newspaper (HD).
A number of witnesses reported hearing several shots and said the victim was a middle-aged man, but regional police did not confirm the information.
One witness told the newspaper that a man wearing a mask and dressed in dark blue clothing ran away from the scene of the crime.
A second person received gun shot wounds and was taken to hospital, but the police are remaining tight lipped about the two victims.
"The person has been shot, I have no information about how serious the injuries are," Skåne police spokesperson Helena Ralmark told HD.
The police have cordoned off the surrounding area. A car found nearby was also reportedly taken away for forensic investigation.
