Gang-related suspicions
According to one witness, two masked shooters wielding AK 47 Kalasjnikov rifles entered the bar and opened fire at the crowd that had gathered to watch a Champions League football match last night. They then fled in a car.

”The car and suspects have yet to be located and the bar is closed off for technical investigations,” the Gothenburg police have revealed.

The area in Gothenburg where the shooting occurred, Vårväderstorget, has been plagued by gang-related crime for some time now.

The incident followed an earlier one in after at least two people were injured in a shooting at the Fields shopping centre in Copenhagen.
