Sweden Rocked by Multiple Shootings as Historic Crime Wave Carries Into New Year

Multiple victims were struck by gunfire in shootings that unfolded on the same day in Sweden this week, according to reports.

At least three people were injured or killed in separate incidents on Wednesday in Stockholm and Malmö as the Nordic nation's historic violent crime crisis continues into 2023.

Just before 6:30 a.m., authorities were alerted about shots fired in a parking lot near Gyllin's Garden nature park on the east side of Malmö.

"Several police patrols were sent to the scene and an injured man was found. The parking lot was cordoned off and the injured man was taken to hospital by ambulance after medical assessment," Swedish police explained in a statement.

The victim was struck by at least three bullets - two in the upper body and one in the head, but is expected to survive, according to Samnytt.

No suspects were apprehended or identified at the time of this writing.

Hours later, an ongoing shooting was reported in Jordbro, an "immigrant-dominated" suburb in Greater Stockholm.

Police arrived on the scene just before 4 p.m. and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds – one in his 20s and the other in his 40s – one of whom reportedly died a short time later.

Both men had previous criminal convictions, and authorities believe the shooting was gang-related.

"Last year, a new record was set with 63 gang and immigration-related shootings in Sweden. Despite the previous government's promises to 'crack the gangs,' it was a dramatic increase from the years before that, even though these were also record years," reports Mats Dagerlind of Samnytt.

The former Scandinavian paradise has become one of the most dangerous countries in Europe, according to some observers.

Infowars Europe regularly documents crime and disturbing events in Sweden, considered one of the safest and most sophisticated nations in the world not long ago.

All Infowars' broadcasts are important, but this one is key to learn the New World Order’s agenda and how humanity can stop it.
