Two men aged 18 and 29 were slain in an internet café near the city centre of Malmö last night, and four others injured.

Like an execution
Witnesses reported that between 12 and 15 shots were fired from what sounded like an automatic weapon at around 20:00 at the café on Drottninggatan.

The reports would appear to suggest it was a lone gunman and there was no return fire. The witness told Expressen newspaper that the shooting “resembled an execution”.

Not a terror attack
Some of the wounded were shortly afterwards driven off at high speed in cars, while the remainder were taken in an ambulance.

The police have stated there is no danger to the public, denying that the shooting was a terror attack of some sort.
