According to several sources to SVT, the shot dead is a Swedish famous rapper.

Expressen was the first to tell about this.

The police do not want to go out with who it is that has been shot, more than that it is a man.

The rapper achieved great success, he has millions of gigs on Spotify and he has won several music awards.

Relatives have been notified.

The police are silent

Several people called the police at 22.50 on Thursday night after hearing loud bangs that sounded like shots.

When the police arrived at the scene, a gunshot wounded man was found.

- Life-saving measures were taken, but he died on the spot, says police spokesperson Carina Skagerlind.

Large police force

A police helicopter has been deployed in the hunt for one or more perpetrators.

The police have received information that one or more people have run from the crime scene.

The police will now talk to witnesses.

No arrests have been made so far, but several people have been brought in for questioning.

- But it is more because they have information to provide.

We have continued a major effort and are working intensively with image analysis and door knocking, says Carina Skagerlind.

Many police officers are on site in Hammarby lake town.
