A Swedish military conscript was shot dead in an apparent accident during a drill Wednesday.

According to an army spokesman, it was not immediately clear what caused the incident, but the man was killed by a bullet from his automatic rifle.

Police are investigating the incident, which happened at a shooting range near Kristianstad in the south of the country.

About 15,000 Swedes, mostly men aged 18-19, enlist for military service each year.
