Last weekend, residents of Nacka, Sweden were shocked to find out two neighbor residents were hit by bullets fired by men with an automatic rifle.
Police were alerted to gunfire in Nacka at 8:57 pm on Sunday. Witnesses say that the shooter fired upon a multi-family apartment building and at a taxi.
According to Aftonbladet, the driver of the taxi and one person in an apartment were hit by shots which allegedly came from an automatic rifle.
The individual who was found injured in an apartment was reportedly hit by a ricochet.
As for the taxi driver, he is believed to have some connection with the three shooters.
“We can say that they were shot, but exactly how the injured received their injuries, it is too early to say it,” said police spokesperson Carina Skagerlind.
“The events are being investigated as an attempted murder,” added Skagerlind.
Following the incident, 56-year-old Anders who lives in the neighborhood told journalists from Expressen that he intends on selling his apartment and moving to Värmdö.
“In Nacka, it is not possible to stay,” he says.
Police have confirmed that three men have been arrested and were subsequently questioned about the shooting. One of the individuals is said to have links to one of the most recent shootings in Stockholm, Aftonbladet reports.
The shooting is the third that has occurred in Sweden in just two weeks.
