Malmö shooter suspect set for remand hearing (Sweden)

The 38-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder in connection with the racist shootings in Malmö is set for a remand hearing on Tuesday as reports emerge linking one of his guns with a crime scene.

The prosecutor has filed a remand request and the hearing is booked to be held in the security chamber at Malmö District Court from 12-1pm on Tuesday.

The man, named as Peter Mang by the Expressen daily on Tuesday, is suspected of murder and five cases of attempted murder.

According to the newspaper, police have concluded after tests that at least one of the weapons licensed to Mang matches bullet fragments found at one or more of the shootings of which he is suspected.

Skåne police spokesperson, Ewa-Gun Westford, declined to confirm the report.

Peter Mang was arrested on Saturday after a tip off from a member of the public. Police have confirmed only his age, that he "has a Swedish background" and that he does not have any previous criminal convictions.

A possible motive for the attacks has not been released by the police but Mang's father was quoted by the Aftonbladet daily on Monday as saying that his son "lived in fear of immigrants taking over Swedish society".

Police are working on up to 20 unsolved shootings that they believe may have been deliberately targeting people with immigrant backgrounds in the city.

Malmö police have issued calls to the public to assist with information pertaining to the case.

The announcement spread panic in the city and a connection was quickly established with the case of an immigrant-shooting sniper in Stockholm in the early 1990s nicknamed "Laser Man."

"Laser Man" was the nickname given to John Ausonius, who shot 11 people of immigrant origin, killing one, around Stockholm from August 1991 to January 1992.

Ausonius, who got his nickname by initially using a rifle equipped with a laser sight, was sentenced to life behind bars in 1994 and remains in prison.
