In the course of a day, three people were shot dead in villas in southern Stockholm after a shooter with an automatic weapon entered their home.

When the trial against a 17-year-old accused of triple murder began on Monday, a tumult broke out, reports TV4.

The accused of murder, who was 16 at the time of the murders, is said to have taunted the victims’ relatives and one of the plaintiffs is said to have broken furniture outside the hall, after which the police were forced to intervene and wrestle the person down.

– It is the case that one of the defendants behaves in a way that should not be done in the courtroom, taunts and behaves in a way that can also be threatening. We will draw the district court’s attention to it, says lawyer Thomas Bodström, who represents the plaintiff, to TV4.

– It is already very, very difficult to be a relative in such a terrible event. To then also be violated during the trial, it is difficult to describe how you feel then.
