A second shooting victim has seen his case against the suspected Malmö serial shooter dropped, with one week left until the trial begins.

The 16-year-old boy was cycling to football practice in 2006 when he was hit in the head with several bullets but survived.

"What we have from the investigation is not expected to prove a link to the crime," prosecutor Solveig Wollstad told regional daily Sydsvenskan late Friday via SMS.

The police did not find bullets, casings, DNA or any finger prints at the scene of the shooting.

Earlier on Friday, a man who had been shot through the torso but survived also saw his case dropped. The police cited lack of evidence.

The suspect will be charged with 21 offences, reports Sydsvenskan.

Three killings and several attempted murder charges will be supplemented by conspiracy to murder, vandalism and obstruction of justice charges.
