Progress in the investigation – two arrested on suspicion of attempted murder
The suspected attempted murder in Gamlegården took place during the early hours of Wednesday morning. A 35-year-old man was shot in the leg.
Police arrested a man in his 20s later that day. He is suspected of involvement in the shooting and was then detained by prosecutors.
On Thursday, police received new information. Another man, also in his 20s, then became a suspect.
– He was brought in for questioning yesterday afternoon. He was arrested later in the evening, said police spokesman Robert Loeffel on Friday morning.
The man who was arrested on Wednesday is suspected on reasonable grounds, the lower degree of suspicion. The man who was arrested on Thursday is suspected on probable cause, that is, a stronger suspicion.
The prosecutor has four days to decide whether the two men should be remanded in custody or released.
– Several measures in the investigation must be taken before prosecutors can make a decision on pre-trial detention, says Robert Loeffel.
