EXTRA: A hand grenade was thrown against a police car — exploded on the road
This is how the event occurred yesterday evening. “There is panic throughout the organization”.
Tuesday morning 24Uppsala reported on an explosion that occurred on Monday evening. Some sort of explosive charge was detonated in a parking garage near the police station, damaging several nearby cars.
Earlier this morning, the police announced that a 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of involvement in attempted murder and general mayhem.
At 11:10pm last night a loud explosion could be heard in the area of the Uppsala police station. According to sources for 24Uppsala.se, a grenade was thrown against a police car that was driving in the vicinity at the time.
The grenade, however, must have missed the police car and instead detonated on the road, resulting in a pressure wave in the direction of a residential area.
“There is panic throughout the organization right now. We already have several murders and shootings, and now this,” says a police officer who wishes to remain anonymous.
Follow-up summarized by Tania from Nettavisen.no:
In this article, the police spokeswoman Lisa Sandervik mentions that it likely is a result of recent events. “Last week we had an action in Gottsunda / Valsätra district (no-go zone), where we now have a situation we must assume is an action in retribution for the police operation in the area,” says Sannervik.
