Gunman Causes Panic In Malmö

There was panic on the streets of Sweden’s third largest city Malmö on Thursday when a gunman opened fire, shooting dead a man and injuring two others at an outdoor cafe in the city centre.

A 32 year old man was shot in the leg while a 75 year old Argentinian woman received injuries to her hand. Both were taken to hospital. The victim was shot in the head at close range and died at the scene.

A police spokesman said all available units had been called in to search for the gunman, though he said it remained unclear whether there were others involved in the shooting.
