Shots were fired in connection with a robbery of a gold store at Engelbrektsplan in the Stockholm city district of Östermalm on Tuesday afternoon.

The alarm came shortly after 2 o’clock PM. When the police arrived six minutes later the staff had triggered a safety mechanism so that the door of entrance was locked. Therefore could the three robbers quickly be arrested at the scene.

Ulf Lindgren, spokesman at the Stockholm police communication centre, says there are no reports of anyone beeing injured by the several shoots that were fired.

Main problem is selling arms to everyone asking and not checking deep controls in his past activity , although this is not enough sometimes.
