    Trelleborg is a Swedish port town located near Malmö and Copenhagen, Denmark. According to local authorities, the four injured have been taken to hospital, but at least eight ambulances were called to the area.

    “At least two have [suffered] shot injuries, but some of them have other types of injuries,” police spokesman Fredrik Bratt , local media reported.

    “There were many shots. We saw someone running outside,” according to an eyewitness who was interviewed by the Swedish daily Expressen.

    Police have so far questioned five people in connection with the shooting. Authorities also detained at least one person and conducted a search in one apartment.

    The small town has been known for immigrant violence, but the police said the incident was not being investigated as terrorism. They blamed it on “gang violence”. Police said they did not believe there was “a danger to third parties”.

    Police confirmed however that a K-9 unit issued a search for weapons and that officers were interviewing witnesses. Armed police cordoned off Trelleborg town centre.

    In March this year protesters demonstrated against immigration at the Port of Trelleborg, in an anti-immigrant “People’s march.”

    Some 200 protesters gathered, calling for the resignation of Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and demanding early elections. Demonstrators also held signs in support of Peter Springare, a Swedish police officer who was investigated for incitement of “racial hatred” after he stated on Facebook that most crime in Sweden was being committed by immigrants.
