Police could be closer to solving Malmö shootings

Published måndag 25 oktober 2010 kl 11.52
Police work on solving shootings in Malmö as the media looks on.

Police in the southern city of Malmö now hope to get DNA samples in connection with a continued spate of shootings over the past year.

On Saturday, a suspect in the crimes attacked an Iranian-born tailor, delivering a head-butt that may have left behind traces of DNA on the tailor's person. Police are hoping to collect this material, reports Swedish Radio news.

The tailor was shot close to a busstop, where just two weeks before, somebody else had also been shot.

Police have now received some 100 tips in the crimes. At least some of the shootings are thought to be linked and police say that the violence has mostly targeted people with "dark skin". Newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports that because the attacks have focused on a small vicinity of Malmö, the police believe that the suspect or suspects know the area well.
