Five arrested after burial of gang leader

Police fired a warning shot in the southern Swedish city of Ronneby Wednesday after the burial of a motorcycle gang leader, who was killed in a shooting in March.

A spokesperson for the Blekinge police, Lotta Hanson, told news agency TT that tumult in Sörbygården after the burial led to serious injuries, with three people taken to the hospital.

Five people were arrested for aggravated assault and threatening police, who fired the warning shot which did not injure anyone, according to Hansson.
