Police in southern Sweden says several people have been injured in a small town known for past gang violence and that the incident is not being investigated as terrorism.

Police said two of the injured were hurt during a shooting and that a total of four people were taken to the hospital today.

They said there was nothing about the outbreak of violence in central Trelleborg to suggest it was terror-related.
