The Mean Streets of Kista

Kista is a suburb to the north of Stockholm, adjacent to the culturally enriched no-go zones of Tensta and Rinkeby.

The following video and article, both translated by Gary Fouse, concern a shooting death that occurred early yesterday morning in Kista. As usual, there is no mention of ethnicity in the reports, but the fact that “gang criminality” is said to be a possibility makes one suspect that the murder may have been culture-enriching. Oh, and there’s also a connection to the Vårby network*.

Murder in Stockholm suburb — Young man executed with several shots

April 18, 2021

A 20-year-old man was shot to death just before 3am in the northwestern Stockholm suburb of Kista next to the “vulnerable area” of Rinkeby, Tensta, and Husby. A number of people are said to have witnessed the shooting.

At 2:43 am on Sunday morning police were notified. A man in his 20s had been hit with several shots fired in the residential area of Kista. The shooting occurred in front of several witnesses.

Police do not rule out the possibility that this may be a case of gang criminality. According to Expressen, the victim is a close relative of a person who is accused in the big Vårby case.

“They engaged in some form of confrontation with the victim, shot him outside, then left the area,” says Ola Österling, the press spokesperson for the Stockholm police.

During the night police interviewed witnesses and are also going through a number of video recordings of the murder, since it occurred in an area with surveillance cameras.

Police have no suspect

“There is extensive material to go through,” states Österling.

The area is cordoned off today, and the police are searching it with dogs while criminal technicians analyze any findings in the hunt for clues. Nobody has been arrested for the murder, and the police report they have no suspects. The man’s relatives have been notified, the police report.

The close relative of the victim is one of 30 people from the criminal Vårby network charged with a large number of serious crimes, including murder, kidnapping, bombings, as well as serious weapons and narcotics offenses.

  1. The Honecker solution would be great.
    Build a wall around this area, cut off all supply into this area and lets wait a decade.
