    Police in Sweden say terror not suspected in town shootings

    STOCKHOLM — Police in southern Sweden say 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 late Thursday.

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