SWEDEN IN CHAOS: After Sunday's shooting murder in Malmö police now ask the rest of Sweden for help. "Our forces are exhausted," says the Police Chief.
After Sunday's shootings in Malmö, where a 19-year-old man was killed and three others wounded by gunfire, the local police now say that with such great number of murder investigations they are now seeking help from the police in the rest of Sweden.
Police in Malmö are faced with six different murder investigations alone this year, at least 20 shootings since June, and a wave of cars burning and other crime this summer.
- Our forces are not enough. They are simply used up, says Malmö's police chief Stefan Sintéus to the newspaper Sydsvenskan.
According to the newspaper, the police in Malmö already have between ten and twenty police officers on each of the five previous homicides, and therefore have asked the police top management that officers from other police districts take over the investigation of Sunday's shooting.
The violent shootout Sunday was against four men in a car with automatic weapons. There were fired about 20 shots, which partly affected the four men, and partly hit into apartments in the area.
Police in Malmö has already refocused so that all forces are used on the murder cases and the 25 cases of attempted murder, which is so far recorded by the many shootings. Now the Malmö police leadership believes there is no other option than to seek outside help.
- I expect to get help. Otherwise we are going to make some very strict priorities, says police chief Stefan Sintéus, to Sydsvenskan.
