SWEDEN -- A janitor in charge of clearing snow was shot last night near Pildammsparken in Malmö, reports the regional newspaper Sydsvenskan.
The man, who has life-threatening injuries after the night's shooting, is a middle-aged man who was shot when he was out clearing snow, says a colleague of the man to Sydsvenskan.
- He came here to shovel snow, and then he was shot, says his colleague.
The victim works for a company that is hired by a housing cooperative and he has no criminal record.
- We have several people in custody. We do not want to go into detail about how many people have been arrested. But it is linked to the night's shooting, and people are also suspected of other crimes, says Stephan Söderholm at the police control center.
Malmö police chief Stefan Sintéus points out that the arrested are in a criminal gang.
- These people were quite quickly known to us. Those we have detained are known by us. We have focused on them previously, says Stefan Sintéus, and thus reveals that it is about a criminal gang of immigrants - as usual.
Police inform that the victim's injuries are still considered life-threatening.
- The person is seriously injured, but we received notice from the hospital that they have stabilized the situation, says police chief Stefan Sintéus.
