Conscript Killed In Shooting Range Accident

A conscript was shot to death in an accident at a shooting range in the Stockholm archipelago Tuesday.

Officers are investigating how the accident took place, but sources say a sailboat was on its way into the shooting area and the conscript was on a military boat on its way to move the other vessel out of the way. But exactly how the accident took place is still unclear.

Defence Minister Sten Tolgfors says he is thinking about the victim’s family, friends and fellow soldiers. Both police and army investigations into the accident have now begun. This was the 15th accidental death involving youngsters on military service since 1995 according to the newspaper Aftonbladet.
