Man gunned down in car with children in backseat

A 37-year-old man was shot to death in a car in a Stockholm suburb on Thursday. The murder victim's two young children were in the backseat at the time.

"They are with their mother. Physically, they are unharmed," Lars Byström, press spokesperson at Stockholm police, tells news Agency TT. He said the two children were in shock.

The man was driven to hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The police were called to a sports playing field in Hässelby gård at 4pm after a witness heard gunshots.
