According to the newspaper “Express” the shooter is said to have been waiting for his victim in the hotel lobby. The perpetrator sat there relaxed with a laptop on his lap and a bag next to him.

When his target came out of the elevator, the killer approached the victim with his gun and, according to witnesses, pulled the trigger several times. Then he escaped on an electric bike.

Two of the gang leader’s brothers have also been shot dead in recent years.

Sweden has had a major problem with rampant gang crime for a long time. The conflicts between numerous different networks take place in the large cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, but also in smaller places.

Shots are fired again and again, and there are also more frequent deliberate explosions.
