On Tuesday at lunchtime, a shooting occurred in central Gävle and one person was taken to hospital with gunshot wounds.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The Sweden Democrats' party leader Jimmie Åkesson was in Gävle on Tuesday night and met voters.

SVT Gävleborg asked what he wants to do to overcome the shootings that take place in the county and in the country.

- What we do in many municipalities where we have influence is that we increase the number of security guards, security guards and set up cameras.

That is what the municipality can do, says Jimmie Åkesson (SD).
