Three people have been injured in a shooting in Sweden’s third-largest city, Malmo. Police are currently searching for the shooter.

The shooting occurred in a building on Ystadvagen Street in Malmo overnight Saturday, according to a police statement. Two people suffered life-threatening injuries, one other was left with minor injuries.

According to reports in local media, a man entered the building shouting “Who hit my brother?” before opening fire.
