At least two people have died and several were injured after a gunman opened fire inside a bar in the city of Gothenburg, Swedish police said.
Police said that an automatic weapon is believed to have been used in the shooting, but they had no details on any suspects.

"There is absolutely nothing that indicates terrorism," Brehm said, adding there where indications that it was gang related.
Prosecutors from Sweden have submitted a formal request to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, asking his permission to question him in London where he has claimed asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy.
The prosecutor wants to quiz him and carry out DNA tests in connection with allegations of sexual assault and rape, which Assange denies.
The Australian has been hiding inside the South American country's UK embassy for almost three years, in fear of being extradited to Sweden.
He says he believes if he was sent to Sweden, he would then be extradited to the United States where he faces being tried for one of the biggest information leaks in the country's history through his website.
Assange's Swedish lawyer has reportedly welcomed the request to question him, but said he is concerned that the process could take some time, as both Britain and Ecuador will have to give their permission for the interview to take place.
Assange has previously offered to be interviewed inside the embassy, but Swedish authorities had refused until now.
We welcome and see it also as a big victory ... for Julian Assange, that what we have demanded is finally going to happen.
