Police said a dozen shots were fired but no arrests have been made and they are looking for a dark vehicle.

Three of the six men who were injured in a drive-by shooting in the center of Sweden's third-largest city, have died, Swedish authorities said Tuesday.

Witnesses told newspaper Aftonbladet they heard what sounded like 15 to 20 shots about 6:15pm in the city centre.

Aftonbladet says the shootings took place next to a police station so officers were on the scene immediately.
