The detention hearing will be held in Hässleholm District Court on Wednesday and both are suspected of attempted murder and aggravated weapons offences, together and in agreement with another.

As grounds for detention, the prosecutor states that the sentence should not be lighter than two years imprisonment for the crime in question, and that there is a risk that the suspects may obstruct the investigation by removing evidence or by some other way.

Both suspects are residents in Helsingborg region. The 16-year-old was just sentenced to juvenile detention a month ago for driving without a license, drunk driving, minor drug offenses and money laundering.

The 17-year-old has been suspected of a number of crimes, such as robbery, selling drugs and assault, and has been the focus of community efforts for several years.

They were arrested during the early hours of Monday, at 1.45 am, that is, less than an hour after a man in his 20s was shot and seriously injured on Skolgatan in Hässleholm.
