The policemen who in a shootout with robbers in central Stockholm on Tuesday shot eleven bullets, that ended up in a nearby gym, are now investigated for misconduct.

The prosecution could at worst be “causing of danger to others”, writes daily Svenska Dagbladet.

There are currently no suspects, and the prosecutor can not say how many police officers who fired their weapons.

It was when three robbers were locked in at a gold store in the upscale city district of Östermalm that a heavy exchange of fire erupted. No person were injured.
