…. just before midnight last evening. A 25 – 30 -year-old man was shot on our doorstep and he was declared dead he when he arrive at Helsingborg’s hospital.
When I heard the shots I rushed to my bay window and there was nothing outside on the street. After a couple of minutes, I saw a young man running down the street and went in behind the two buildings opposite ours. Another man came running just minutes after but continue down the street.
Phoned the police straight away without knowing what had happened and they informed me that they already were dealing with the incident. Also informed them about the running men, but the police haven’t come back to me. They are asking for witnesses to come forward in the press today.
For me it didn’t sound like shots it was more like somebody had been banging on some metal very hard and fast, 5-6 bang.
I joined the crowd on the street after 15 min and the shooting had happened just beside our courtyard entrance and after that, I went straight back to my apartment.
This morning the newspaper informed that the young man was shot outside an entrance door like he had been standing to talk to somebody or was waiting for somebody.
A witness at the scene was shocked so difficult that another ambulance was sent to the crime scene during the night.
This morning the police technicians continued to investigate crime scenes, but the street is open for traffic now.
There isn’t a day that the news tells us about murders and killing, even in the most peaceful places all over Sweden. Where did things go so wrong with our society????
Where did we lose our respect for life, our own and others????
My thoughts go out to the young man’s family and friends.
Maybe he is my neighbors??? Maybe he was one of the young men that plays soccer in our courtyard during the warm summer evenings with the younger children???
