    This week two men were shot dead in their car outside a primary school. “In the past few days we’ve had five murders in Stockholm. Of course it is alarming and very serious,” regional police chief Ulf Johansson said.

    Fatal shootings have doubled over the last nine years according to statistics from the National Board of Sweden. Johansson confirmed that gang wars are raging in the Swedish capital: ”We have had a large number of serious crimes and shootings in Stockholm recently.”

    But when asked if the public should be concerned for their safety, he said: “We see them as isolated gang environments”.

    Patrick Ungsäter, a senior police officer representing the northern Stockholm area, said: “The conclusion is that we can’t rule out new violent crimes. We have had five murders in recent days. We can conclude that these are exclusively gang-related shootings.”

    “I can’t comment more than to say that they are part of this gang environment and previously known to us,” said Ungsäter.

    On Wednesday evening two men were discovered with gunshot wounds to the head in a car just near a primary school. Multiple police cars surrounded the area and police helicopters were spotted overhead. The car in which the two men had been found, had its license plates removed.

    Police spokesperson Anna Westberg confirmed two people had been injured, adding they had been rushed to hospital with serious injuries, but would not comment on the nature of the shooting.

    A spokesman later confirmed the two men – who were known to police – died in hospital. No arrests have been made yet.

    Westberg said “the caller mentioned that another car disappeared at high speed”, Swedish broadcaster SVT reported.
