It was early Wednesday morning two weeks ago that the police were called to Kungsgatan in central Uppsala after residents heard a loud bang.
Initial information spoke of an explosion, but once on the scene, the police could ascertain that one or more perpetrators had shot through a door to an apartment where, according to SVT Uppsala, there were two people.
None of the people were injured, but when there was a risk of that, a preliminary investigation into attempted murder was started - and the hunt for those involved intensified.
Last week, the police were again alerted to a shooting, this time in Jordbro south of Stockholm.
Passers-by had found empty shell casings and during the forensic investigation, bullet holes were discovered in a nearby underpass, but no one was injured.
Later in the day, the police identified a suspect who was subsequently wanted and arrested.
The person, a 35-year-old man, was also suspected of the shooting in Uppsala and is now in custody on Tuesday on suspicion of serious weapons offences, the shooting in Jordbro - and two cases of aiding and abetting attempted murder on Kungsgatan.
- He denies the crime, now we'll see what the investigation comes up with, says the man's lawyer Slobodan Jovicic.
