19-year-old detained on suspicion of murder in Jakobsberg

The suspect was today detained on probable cause on suspicion of murder, prosecutor Johan Udén confirms.

Defense lawyer Mikael Westerlund says that his client contests the detention, and that there would be probable cause. The suspect also denies that he was involved.

– He will help the police show that he is innocent. My assessment is that what has been presented is very weak at the moment, says Mikael Westerlund.

The alarm about the shooting came in at 5.40pm on Monday afternoon. The man was taken to hospital but later died from his injuries. According to information to SVT, the victim is in his 20s, and previously convicted of several crimes.
