Police no closer to solving Malmö shootings

Malmö police are still looking for the man they suspect has been shooting at local residents over the past year.

More and more reports of shootings over the past few days are being reported, but only in once case is there evidence that a gun has actually been fired.

Demonstrations were held by religious groups in the city Saturday, calling for the shootings to stop.

Over a dozen people are thought to have been targeted over the past twelve months, almost all with what the local police have called "dark skin". One 20 year old woman was killed. Media reports claim that the police have linked the weapon used in that killing with at least five of the other shootings.
