Two killed in Swedish restaurant shooting

Two men have been killed and up to 15 injured in a shooting in a restaurant in the south-western Swedish city of Gothenburg, police say, the BBC reports.

They say automatic weapons – believed to be Kalashnikov assault rifles – were used in the attack late on Wednesday.

The men who died were between 20 and 25, police said.

Police spokeswoman Ulla Brehm was quoted as saying the shooting could have been gang-related.

One witness told Sweden’s SVT broadcaster that two men entered the restaurant and opened fire.

The attack happened as customers were watching a football game.

The gunmen are believed to have fled.

The police sealed off the area and launched a murder investigation.
