    Several people have been seriously injured after a gunman reportedly opened fire at a market in Trelleborg, Sweden, according to local media.

    Local media reported that at least four people had been taken to hospital, while some reports suggested up to seven people might have been seriously injured.

    “We have received several reports of a shooting in Trelleborg,” a police spokesman said, as quoted by British daily the Express. “When we arrived at the scene, several people with gunshot injuries were found.”

    The police spokesman, Fredrik Bratt, added that multiple victims suffered “suspected gunshot” wounds.

    “There were many shots. We saw someone running outside,” an eyewitness told the Swedish publication Expressen.

    “I was at home at the computer when I heard a loud bang,” Aron Tydén – another person in the area – told the publication, claiming that he heard people running.

    Police have cordoned off the area, allowing ambulances through. The victims were reportedly rushed to hospitals in Malmö and Lund. Forensics team and a canine unit have also been dispatched to the scene of the incident.
