June 30, 2021. 112 receives several alarm calls about a shooting in Biskopsgården in Gothenburg. Two police officers are in the area and drive towards Vårväderstorget on a moped. One of them is Andreas Danman. Arriving at the scene, he is shot to death.
Witnesses describe the perpetrator as young, wearing a black hoodie and armed with a firearm. A 17-year-old is arrested within just a few days.
The weapon is traced to Slovakia
The weapon used in the police killing is a Skorpion, a small submachine gun. Through the serial number H8212 it can be traced back to Slovakia. It was smuggled into Sweden back in 2014. How did it end up in the hands of a 17-year-old in Biskopsgården?
It’s not the only weapon. Since 2014, Swedish customs have noted that the same Slovak company has sent several packages of weapons to Sweden.
