Sweden: `Racial motive` in shootings suspected; police on alert
Stockholm: Swedish police are searching for a gunman who wounded two women through a window — the latest attack in a string of shootings that have been going on for almost a year.
Police spokesman Borje Sjoholm says there have been about a dozen shootings since the attacks began in the southwestern city of Malmo in December.
Sjoholm said on Friday that the attacks — seemingly targeting people with an immigrant background — appear to be linked, although officers are not sure if Thursday`s shooting is connected to the previous attacks.
Investigators say the shooter is a man between the ages of 20 and 40, but have given no other details. They believe a large-calibre handgun was used in most of the attacks.
