Police in Sweden are attempting to downplay initial reports of terrorism after a man opened fire on a crowd during World Cup celebrations as the Swedish national team beat South Korea earlier in the day. As the story broke, multiple international headlines suggested a terror attack in progress related to World Cup play, with at least five people wounded in the southern city of Malmo. One man has reportedly died of his injuries in what's being described as a "mass shooting".

A hail of bullets was unleashed by an unknown shooter in a car mid-evening in the downtown Drottninggatan area just as revelers took the streets to celebrate the Swedish national team's 1-0 win against South Korea.

All 5 victims are being described in European press as "World Cup fans" who were among a crowd exiting area venues that had been screening the soccer match. The shooter (or shooters) may have been targeting a group gathered inside of a coffee shop.

"There are no signs that this is terror-related," said police spokesman Fredrik Bratt, as quoted in EuroNews. "It is probably a shooting between criminal individuals."

Though as the Daily Mail reports "feuds between criminal gangs fighting over territory have taken place in major Swedish cities in recent years" Swedish media initially described a crime that appears broad and random in nature, designed to cause mass casualties.

However, some local sources indicate some among the victims may include known criminals engaged in gang or organized crime activities.
