Gothenburg shootings may be gang-related

Two people were taken to the hospital after they were shot while they were in a car in Majorna in Gothenburg on Saturday night and are in serious condition, reports Swedish Radio's local station.

Police suspect that the shooting could be gang-related.

"These two guys have an affililation to a gang in town. Keeping in mind the history we have in Gothenburg, this is one line of inquiry we're working with," Christer Fuxborg, the police's press spokesperson, told news agency TT, adding that the police have not ruled out that there could have been some other reason for the shooting.
