Stockholm — Two women of immigrant background were shot through the window of their apartment in Malmo and Swedish police fear a lone gunman might be behind a spate of racially-motivated shootings in the southern city.
Detectives said they were linking up to 15 gun attacksin the city over the past year that have targeted people of immigrant background.
The investigation came amid growing tension in Sweden over immigration.
In elections in September, 20 members of a far-right anti-immigration party won seats in parliament.
Police have not revealed exactly which cases the special unit was looking into. However, Swedish media reported that they include one fatal shooting — a 20-year-old woman last October who was sitting in a car.
In recent weeks, two men of ethnic minority background have also been shot and wounded while waiting at bus stops.
And on Thursday evening two women described by police as “immigrants from a European country” were wounded after being shot through their apartment window. (BBC)
