A man has been seriously injured in a shooting in Årby, Eskilstuna.

"We are in the process of looking for a suspected perpetrator or several suspected perpetrators. We work broadly," says the police press speaker Angelica Israelson Silfver.

The crime scene and a nearby pizzeria have been sealed off.

Both police officers nearby and private individuals heard bangs in the area and sounded the alarm at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday. It is unclear whether anyone or some also witnessed the crime.

"We are in the process of collecting which witnesses exist and what they may have seen or heard. We are interested in observations of both cars and people in connection with the event," says Angelica Israelson Silfver.

By 9:30, no suspect had been arrested.
