Shooting in Gamlegården taken to the Court of Appeal – the prosecutor wants the 17-year-old convicted too
The District Court acquitted a 17-year-old, who the prosecutor now wants convicted.
On Tuesday 3 August last year, three masked individuals showed up on a motorcycle outside Gamlegården's centre. Shots were fired and three people were injured.
In March this year, a 21-year-old and two teenagers were charged on suspicion of nine counts of attempted murder and causing danger to another. Two other people were charged with protecting a criminal, suspected of washing the perpetrators' clothes.
On May 31, the verdict was reached in Kristianstad’s District Court. The 21-year-old was sentenced to 12 years in prison and an 18-year-old was given almost seven years in prison for several counts of attempted murder. The third, a 17-year-old, was fully acquitted.
"The District Court has made an incorrect assessment of the evidence regarding the circumstances which point to NN’s (the 17-year-old's) guilt," she writes in her appeal. In her appeal, she asks the Court of Appeal to change the District Court’s verdict and convict the 17-year-old for attempted murder, causing danger to another and aggravated weapons offenses.
Several of the legal counsel, who are representing the victims and have appealed their clients’ damages, share the prosecutor’s view that the 17-year-old should be convicted of attempted murder.
