Chaotic Sweden: Multiple Explosions, Hospital Shooting in Just 12 Hours

In the span of 12 hours, police in Malmö, Sweden, investigated two explosions and a shooting in a hospital, according to incident reports and local media.

A "powerful" late-night blast destroyed parts of a shop near Rosengård, one of Malmö's most infamous 'no-go zones,' according to police.

"Heavy detonation broke down a whole store Malmö," Fria Tider reported. "The entire entrance to the shop has been lost and the damage is extensive."

Hours earlier, law enforcement were called to an explosion at a multi-family home on the north side of the city.

The residence was temporarily cordoned off while forensics inspectors attempted to determine the cause of the detonation.

Additionally, a hospital complex was placed on lock down after reports of a shooting on site.

"The caller said that shots were fired in connection to a riot on Ruth Lundskog's street," police say.

No suspects could be located on the scene, but police indicate they found evidence corroborating claims that shots had been fired.

Infowars Europe recently reported on Swedish officials calling for armed guards to be stationed in emergency rooms to tackle the "new reality" of increasing violence at hospitals.

A hot spot for migrants from the Middle East, Malmö is now considered one of the most dangerous cities in all of Scandinavia – a region where gang warfare, arson and grenade attacks, and 'no-go zones' are rapidly becoming more common.

“Malmo is infamous for explosions. Yet thankfully nobody has been killed by the explosions yet – some of them are just used to frighten people,” former Chief Superintendent Torsten Elofsson told Breitbart upon retiring after 42 years on the Malmö police force.  

“We had one case in Rosengard where a group were given a court order to leave an apartment because they were a disturbance for the neighbors. And then suddenly hand grenades and explosions outside the office of the real estate company.”

Malmö was rocked by a series of explosions in early 2018, including a TNT attack targeting a police station in Rosengård.
