The police have not found out all the details about any of the shootings that have occurred since 15th June 2019. The reason may be battles for territories and clients, that one person owes another person money, disagreements within the group, or that someone feels slighted.
– It can be nothing at all that leads to a shooting, says a person with insight into the gang world.
Kristianstadsbladet has spoken to representatives from the police and the municipality, private individuals aand others engaged in the question.
They believe that groups from Charlottesborg and Gamlegården that sell drugs lie behind a large number of the shootings.
In 2018 the police set up surveillance cameras at Charlottesborg. The municipality and people living in the area have also interrupted the drug-dealing.
But this has made business move nearer the centre of Kristianstad, with disputes over territories and clients as a result.
At Charlottesborg the groupings are hierarchic, with one identified leader.
At Gamlegården there are several smaller groups, where the leading ”members” belong to the same family, who are active on the same drugs market.
Round the gangs there are younger hangers-on who look up to the older criminals and wait for their own chance to play a part.
Kristianstadsbladet has made a study of individuals in the groups. Kb Mosaik will take up the subject again in the autumn.
