A man and a woman have been injured in a shooting at the Emporia shopping centre in Malmö, police reported on Friday evening.


Shortly after 5pm, police received reports of multiple shots being fired within the shopping centre, which is one of the biggest in Scandinavia. 
"Two people are injured, it's unclear how seriously," police press spokesperson Evelina Olsson told the TT newswire. Local health services confirmed shortly afterwards that one of the two, it was unclear which one, were seriously injured.

Police have already arrested the suspected perpetrator, they said, adding that the shooting was linked to Malmö's gangs. 

By 6pm, there were still people in the shopping centre, but according to police, the situation was no longer dangerous.

Police are currently interviewing any witnesses who can describe how the shootings took place.

"We're on the scene with a large amount of resources but there is not an active situation," Olsson said. "We're now trying to get an impression of what happened and collect everyone together who might have witnessed this in different ways."


"People have also taken shelter and locked themselves in to various shops, and we need to deal with that."
Police have closed roads around the shopping centre and stopped all train traffic through the nearby Hyllie station.
