As a mother she says she feels 'despair' at the news of another shooting of a young teenage boy.

After the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy in Malmö, Radio Sweden meets Sigrun Sigurdsson, area manager in work and entrepreneurship at  the Malmö chapter of Fryshuset, a non-profit that helps troubled youth.
