Police on the scene of a shooting in Trelleborg

"[We] received several reports of a suspected shooting in central Trelleborg".

They said several people were injured at different locations. "But we are at the scene and investigating".

"We get calls from several people who have heard shots", police spokesman Fredrik Bratt told the Daily Star.

Trelleborg has been placed on lockdown by armed cops with reports that at least four people suffered gunshot wounds.

"Four people have been hospitalised in Malmö and Lund", authorities said in an update 45 minutes after the shooting but were unable to confirm the severity of their injuries.

A gunman has opened fire at a busy marketplace in Sweden, injuring several people, British media reports.

A major police operation is underway with the gunman reportedly at large.

"Forensics and search dogs are ordered to the site".

"We are blocking certain areas and will conduct a technical survey", Bratt said. Victims are reported to have been found in multiple areas, raising the possibility that there was more than one attack.
