Two people have been murdered in a shooting in Rinkeby on Friday evening, say Stockholm police.
According to Aftonbladet, one of the victims were shot hit in the head, and several shooters have left the scene in a white car.
Shortly before 22 o'clock, police received a call about gunfire at a cafe in Rinkeby in northwest Stockholm.
- The police are in place and confirm that there have been shootings and that two people are dead. Now we are there to gather information, identify the people, notify relatives, and search for the perpetrator or alternatively perpetrators, says Towe Hägg, spokesperson of the Stockholm police.
Threw stones at police
When police cordoned off an area around the cafe, they were subjected to stone throwing.
- They have thrown objects against patrols that protect the crime scene. I know there are a lot of people there. People on the scene are trying to go through the barricades, says Towe Hägg.
She can not say if anyone have been injured by stones or if anyone have been arrested for throwing stones.
According to Aftonbladet's reporter, who is in place outside the cafe, hundreds of people have gathered around the crime scene. Some 50 police officers are working at the site, many of them in riot gear. Police have also sent a task force and a helicopter to the scene.
Automatic weapons and pistol
According to Aftonbladet, one of the deceased was hit in the head. Both automatic weapon and a pistol have been used in the shooting. On the door to the cafe, about half a dozen bullet holes can be seen.
In addition to the two deceased, a man was hit in the arm and was driven to the hospital in a private car, according to Aftonbladet.
Two to three offenders about 20-25-year-old, dressed in hooded jackets have been seen leaving the scene in a white car.
Rinkeby has long been a no-go zone outside Stockholm and is the same suburb where a 60 Minutes TV team from Australia was attacked.
In addition, several other journalist have also been attacked in the suburb where police have completely lost control:
