Investigators suggest that automatic weapons were used, and are searching for a dark auto that was seen leaving the scene at high speed, Aftonbladet reports.

Police in Sweden's third-largest city said that two of the men - aged 18 and 29 - died as a result of their injuries overnight.

All five were taken to hospital, and police were questioning witnesses after sealing off the area where the shooting took place. At approximately 21:00, an as of yet unidentified man is said to have shot at a crowd at the centre of the city.
