On Tuesday, the long trial came to an end.

– We could have had 14 people dead; the youngest victim would have been a one-year-old, says Prosecutor Marie-Louise Holmberg in her plea, reports Radio P4 Kristianstad.

The shooting, which led to three young men being charged with nine counts of attempted murder, seriously injured three people, including an elderly woman.

”I think it is a robust investigation,”
Marie-Louise Holmberg, prosecutor

The prosecutor believes that the total punishable offence is 14 years imprisonment for the eldest of the three, the man who has now turned 21-years-old.

And that the two younger defendants, who are currently 17 and 18-years-old respectively, should be sentenced to four years juvenile detention.

CCTV footage captured three people on a motorcycle as they fled the scene.

– I think it is a robust investigation, but obviously the defence do not agree. During the hearing, we had a lot of information from witnesses and identified the motorcycle, says the prosecutor to Kristianstadsbladet.

According to the prosecutor, the three suspects will have travelled to Gamlegården using the motorcycle. The two teenagers fired the shots from the motorcycle according to the prosecutor.

The defence lawyers think that the evidence is too weak.

”The prosecution should be dismissed and my client set free.”
Niklas Mandelholm, the 17-year-old's lawyer

Maria Ingvarsdotter, who is defending the 21-year-old, believes that there is no evidence linking him to the crime scene at all.

According to the Radio, Niklas Mandelholm, the 17-year-old's lawyer, said:

– The prosecutor has anything but conclusive evidence to prove this. The prosecution should be dismissed and my client set free.

The court has decided to release the 17-year-old according to the Radio.

The 21-year-old has also been a suspect in two other trials. In October, he was sentenced to two years in prison for possession of cocaine and a money laundering offence in Stockholm District Court.
