POLICE are on high alert after an explosion rocked Malmo, Sweden, another ‘bomb’ was found outside a primary school and a gun attack left several people injured.

Witnesses reported hearing 20 gunshots fired in bursts of three during a football derby at around 7pm local time between Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF.

One eyewitness claimed the shots were fired by people in an Audi which drove off at high speed.

Police found shell casings at the scene in Censorgatan and say the suspects may have escaped by moped – four people were injured, including one who was shot in the head.

Officers are treating the incident as attempted murder.

An explosion was then heard at Helenholm, a suburb of Malmo, at around 9pm local time, but this is now understood to have caused by fireworks.

Then a suspicious device was found outside a primary school in Gothenburg, stoking fears Sweden is being targeted by extremists.

Police spokesman Ewa-Gun Westford said: We have an ongoing operation in the area and have a confirmed shootings with more than one injured.

“More we do not know because we are in the midst of it.

“Because it happened during a football derby between Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF in town, there are many policemen on duty in Malmo.”

A police helicopter in the area for the football match has now been deployed to search for the suspects.

Several loud bangs were heard and witnesses told The Local that two people were then carried away to cars, which then fled the scene.

One witness said: “The feet were sticking out of the car windows.”

An explosion rocked the outskirts of the city at around 9pm local time.

The bomb squad and security officers have been sent to the blast in Heleneholm, just half a mile away from the scene of the shooting.

It is unclear if the shooting and explosion are connected or if they are terror-related.

Bomb disposal officers have reportedly blown up a suspicious device outside a school in the northern city of Gothenburg this evening fuelling fears Sweden is under attack.

The shooting comes two months after , shooting a man in the leg.

Gun crime is common in Malmo, with much of it believed to be gang-related.

Police stepped up patrols in the area following a spate of grenade attacks last summer.

Europe has been shaken by a series of violent attacks on civilians in Germany, France and Belgium over the past 18 months. Many of the attacks were claimed by the Islamic State militant group.
