Shooting in Långebro – young man dead
The police’s regional control centre received calls about loud bangs in the area around Långebro at 10.30 pm. At the same time, the police found out that a person with gunshot wounds was taken to the A&E in a private car.
– Of course, we then connected the two incidents, says Rickard Lundqvist, Press Officer at the police's control centre.
The man later died.
The police cordoned off an area in Långebro; the police's forensic technicians were at the scene at 1 am.
– One suspected crime scene is where Långebrogatan meets Torggatan (by Scan), says Lundqvist.
The police have also made some findings in the area and a sniffer dog was used to find the suspected perpetrators.
The police were also at CSK during the night where there was a low-spirited atmosphere according to Lundqvist. Many people had gathered outside. According to information to Kristianstadsbladet, there were about 20 relatives and acquaintances. There were also two to three visible police patrols at the scene.
– Our responsibility is also that staff at the hospital can carry out their job, says Lundqvist.
During the night, police knocked on doors, talked to witnesses, and carried out a forensic investigation.
The police are calling on people who may have heard or seen something in connection with the shooting to contact them on 114 14.
