Ambulance shot at in Stockholm suburb

Less than two hours after the police received an alert that an ambulance in the suburb of Grimsta in western Stockholm had been shot at on Wednesday morning, they found a dead person in an apartment in the same neighborhood.

Ambulance staff were on the way to help a patient when a shot hit the vehicle, Swedish Radio P4 Stockholm reported.

The police suspect that the person who was found dead may have committed suicide, and that the ambulance was called in order to help that person. However, the police have not yet confirmed this hypothesis, according to news agency TT.
