“He he was found in or at the entrance to Bergkristallsparken with what appeared to be gunshot injuries," police west region spokesperson Ulla Brehm told news agency TT.
Police are now looking for two suspected perpetrators who fled the scene in a dark car. According to witnesses, they were wearing dark clothing.
The condition of the man who was shot is currently not known. Aged between 20 and 30, he was taken to the hospital and police have now launched a preliminary investigation into attempted murder.
“We have several witnesses and they'll of course have more details during interviews, and the various interviews will complement one another. We have police with good personal and local knowledge in this area, but it may be that we get a better picture of what happened through physical descriptions and information from different people that is pieced together," Brehm explained to newspaper Göteborgs Posten.
