Police get extra help solving Malmö shootings

The Swedish police announced that a force of some 50 reinforcements have been dispatched the southern city of Malmö to help them solve a series of shootings that are believed to be racially-motivated. Police suspect that a single sniper may have targeted some 15 people of foreign origin over the last year.

Agence France-Presse reports that if the case continues to stump law enforcement officials, more reinforcements may follow this batch.
