Three suspects: Two teenagers and a 23-year-old arrested after shootings at Gamlegården
The 23-year-old is suspected on probable grounds, the more serious degree of suspicion, of being an accessory in the attempted murder on 3rd August at Gamlegården.
– I don't want to say in what way the 23-year-old is thought to have helped, says chief prosecutor Pernilla Åström on Friday forenoon.
Three persons were shot and injured shortly after 3:30 pm on 3rd August at Gamlegården.Two men, one in his 20's and the other in his 30's, and a woman in her 60's were hit .Their injuries were serious.
”When three people ride on the same motor-cycle it attracts a lot of attention”Pernilla Åström, chief prosecutor
The teenagers were remanded in custody on Thursday for attempted murder.
– They will be held in custody for two weeks. But it is a comprehensive investigation. We will probably ask for more time, Pernilla Åström tells Kristianstadsbladet.
The two teenagers came under suspicion after witnesses had been heard. The pair can also be seen on surveillance cameras in the area.
The 23-year-old is also suspected of attempted murder.
– When three people ride on the same motor-cycle it attracts a lot of attention. So we were able to follow the route they took and how they moved around with the help of statements from witnesses and the surveillance cameras, says Pernilla Åström.
”There are a number of things we haven't said to the suspects”Pernilla Åström, chief prosecutor
Residents at Gamlegården: ”We're afraid, and we want practical solutions - our children are in danger”
– It never feels right to have to lock up young boys for such a serious crime. But I thought we had good reason to take them into custody on probable grounds.
The youths deny the charges. The police have secured forensic evidence.
– But we're not saying exactly what it is. There are a number of things we haven't said to the suspects either.
The suspected 17-year-olds have been sentenced by Kristianstad district court this year already. One of them was fined for drug offences and the other was sentenced to detention in a young people's home for drug offences and driving offences.
