According to local reports and the mirror, an unknown man opened fire in an Audi on a crowd before fleeing the area during a football derby between Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF. –The incident happened around 7 p.m. local time. Later there was reports of an explosion in Heleneholm a mere few miles away from where the shootings took place. Police have also since found a suspicious device outside a school in the northern city of Gothenburg.
Four people are injured no deaths have been reported thus far despite this report previously stating four deaths that number has been retracted to injured. One person was reportedly shot in the head and is in critical condition.
Ewa-Gun Westford a police spokeswoman told Independent.ie:“We have an ongoing operation in the area and have a confirmed shootings with more than one injured.”
Bomb squad and other security personnel have flooded the area following the explosions warning residents of the possibility of further attacks and to stay safe and indoors putting the city on high alert for more attacks.

Bomb disposal officers have reportedly blown up a suspicious device outside a school in the northern city of Gothenburg this evening fueling fears Sweden is under attack according to the express.co.uk.
Initial reports of an explosion have been retracted by a Nordic news organization who say the reports of explosions are false. They additionally said there is no terror alert conflicting earlier reports that police had called for an emergency terror alert following the explosion in Heleneholm reported by several news organizations.
Nordic news claims that this is misinformation and was spread viral within hours.
#Malmo shooting recap: There are NO reports whatsoever shooting was terror-related, and shooting is not even top news in Sweden anymore.
A 29 year old woman, Lauren Puryear of New Jersey, used coupons as a tool to bring thousands of meals to people in need at her local homeless shelter and has pledged to feed 30,000 people by the end of this year.
In 2012, Lauren started an organization called “For The Love of Others”, which aims to assist people “through providing opportunities to enable them to live a purposeful life,” according to the group’s own website.
Puryear has already delivered meals to thousands of people and has set a goal for her 30th birthday to help feed a total of 30,000 people. She told NJ.com her process, how she buys the items at the store, sometimes receiving items for free, with no cost at all. She also said she was a mental health clinician, but when she’s not working, examining patients mental health, she is doing another job, being a person that can brighten someones day or give hope, bringing meals to people on the east coast in New Jersey, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and many other homeless shelters.
“I started couponing for food items like spaghetti, meatballs, and I was (often) able to get the items for free or for little to no money. There are coupons in the Sunday paper, or online that you can print … so I collect as many as I can, match them to the store and that is how I am able to get the items for free,” Lauren Puryear said.
So far in 2016, Puryear has managed to deliver a total of 5,000 meals to others. “The joy of helping other people does not compare to any other accomplishment in my life,” she said.
In the midst of the doom and gloom, constant shootings, and bad news, it’s stories like this that give hope to humanity that need to be more frequently covered. Everyday people do selfless acts like this but those people don’t make the news for their efforts to make a change in their own local communities. I applaud Lauren’s organization for helping to feed 5,000 and pledging to feed 30,000 by the end of this year.
If we all practiced this type of kindness, when we could, to give a little bit to others when we can, we would be a greater humanity. Let’s remember we only got one planet and we are one human race, reach out and help out another fellow man or woman. The feeling you feel inside is beautiful knowing you helped another human being in need because you could do something. That person won’t forget you, you will forever be ingrained in that person’s mind. That’s exactly what’s needed sometimes, for someone to be there, to pick you back up when your at your lowest. If you can do that for another person, you will realize that life isn’t just about sex, money and drugs like entertainment echoes in our heads on the radio. Life is about being able to unite as a people for a common goal. It’s sad that sometimes the only way we unite is through a tragic hurricane or tornado, when everyday, there are people who are homeless and starving exactly like those victims of a major storm. Those people are the homeless living on the streets who don’t have anything, living under bridges, in parks, sleeping on the sidewalk or park bench. Think about that…. and find a way to help.
Nwadike embraces another African-American police officer as one man yells “You a pussy, nigga!”
“It’s not even like that, it’s about staying neutral,” replies Nwadike.
An irate protester begins screaming “No my nigga these motherfuckers aren’t stay neutral.” Nwadike responds, “Did he kill somebody?” pointing at the white officer.
“Did he kill somebody?” he repeats, pointing at the African-American officer.
The irate protester then continued yelling back. “Mind you that’s my mother fucking family that squad killed bitch.”
The protestor makes a hypocritical point – Black Lives Matter activists complain about stereotyping all black people as criminals, but are perfectly fine to stereotype all cops as bad, racist murderers or pigs.
“Look if one black person does something that doesn’t make every black person bad. If one cop does something we can not say that every cop is bad,” said Nwadike. “We cannot say that every cop is bad, none of these people here shot anyone!” Nwadike tries to explain to a woman, who isn’t interesting in listening to him and continues to scream in his face while demanding he remove his “free hugs” t-shirt.
The woman at one point in the video begins tugging on Nwadike’s shirt. Another black man then interjects and agrees with Nwadike.
“We know where he’s coming from he’s speaking from a message of peace.” Nwadike then thanks the other man for agreeing with him.
“The thing is, I see them as human beings just like I see everybody on this side as human beings,” he continues explaining to the crowd of protesters. “This uniform doesn’t make him a robot, just like your skin color doesn’t make you a criminal.
“This man gave me a hug,” Nwadike said, pointing at the white police officer, “and this man wants to fight me because of that,” pointing at a Black Lives Matter protester in the crowd who earlier started yelling profanities when he hugged the police officers.
“How does that make sense? Spreading more hate into the world, that’s what’s frustrating me,” Nwadike continued.
Although Nwadike might have a hard time convincing some protesters – as 70% of those arrested weren’t even from North Carolina – when will Black Lives Matter supporters realize that their movement was staged by a rich white man named George Soros.
Some BLM supporters have no problem taking money from a white man that wants to cause division, while others have no problem beating up a white man and dragging him and beating him up as some did in North Carolina. No matter the melanin in your skin color we are all human beings and the Free Hugs hero Ken Nwadike dared to stand up against BLM and expose the double standard of hypocrisy.
Nwadike ended his powerful speech saying “All lives matter.” Yes, some police officers are murdering black men, but all cops are responsible for the individual actions done by by a few. It’s also worth noting – by making this a black vs. white issue, we are taking away from where the real concentrated effort and power should be going – and that’s the proper practices needed in hiring and training of police officers.
We Are Change previously recorded Ken Nwadike, the Free Hugs activist at the riotous protest against Donald Trump in San Diego.
Talking about the Tulsa, Oklahoma shooting of Terence Crutcher, Republican nominee Donald Trump called for more accountability, better training, and to weed out the weak minded who can’t handle the stressful and demanding job of being a police officer.
Trump said officers who choke under pressure and are quick to make rash decisions shouldn’t be police officers at a speech in Cleveland, Ohio.
Trump told the crowd, “As you know I am a tremendous believer in police and law enforcement, because we need that for ourselves, we do, and I really got the endorsement from so many different groups and there great people, great people, you always have problems you have someone in there that either makes a mistake or chokes.”
Trump has previously expressed support for law enforcement and has been endorsed by the largest police union in the U.S., even telling a police organization in New Hampshire, the New England Police Benevolence Association back in December that every single cop killer gets the death penalty if Trump wins. Trump also condemned the recent Dallas Police Officer shooting at a Virginia campaign rally in July.
Speaking about the Tulsa shooting, Trump also told the crowd, “I must tell you I watched the shooting in particularly in Tulsa, and that man was hands up, that man went to the car hands up, put his hands on the car. I mean to me it looked like he did everything you are supposed to do and this young officer I don’t know what she was thinking.”
Trump went on to call the shooting “very troubling,” questioning the decision making by female police officer Betty Shelby, who has now been charged with manslaughter.
“But I am very ,very troubled by it,” said Trump, “And we have to be very careful so these things are terrible that was in my opinion that was a terrible situation and we’ve seen others, and the police are aware of it too the police are troubled by it too. Now did she get scared was she choking what happened? Well maybe people like that who choke can’t be doing what they are doing.”
The Fraternal Order of Police responded to Trump’s criticism of officer Betty Shelby through it’s group’s executive director Jim Pasco. “He must be mindful of the due process rights and presumption of innocence accorded to all, including police officers,” said Pasco.
Trump is treading a cautious line between maintaining the support of law enforcement and it’s supporters, and the burgeoning group of black voters, independents, moderates, and former Democrats trending towards Trump. Recently, Trump also called for a “stop-and-frisk” in cities in response to the latest wave of shootings.
To see some of Trump’s previous statements on police, watch the videos below.
Chaos erupted last night in Charlotte, North Carolina, marking the second night of riots after the death of Keith Scott.
Scott was shot by police after allegedly refusing to drop his gun. Police have yet to release the dash cam video that proves Scott had a handgun.
Things turned violent Wednesday night, as protests quickly became violent riots. One person was arrested, two people were shot, another was critically injured and dozens more were injured, including civilians, police and emergency responders.
4 officers injured during demonstration. All non- life threatening
The man critically injured was identified as a civilian and put onto life support after sustaining serious injuries. The people shot were reportedly not shot by police, but by a rioter, according to the city of Charlotte Twitter account.
ALERT: Fatal shot uptown was civilian on civilian. @CMPD did not fire shot.
However, the Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice, a local church group fighting for justice claimed that several of its members were just 10 feet from the victim when he was shot and they believe the shot was by police and are demanding surveillance CCTV video of the incident.
“I saw the man go down on the pavement, It was an ambush. The victim was shot while he stood between two ministers, and we believe he was shot by police. We would like to see surveillance video from the surrounding area that may have captured the shooting to determine who was responsible for the shooting.”
“We cannot tolerate violence. We cannot tolerate the destruction of property and will not tolerate the attacks towards our police officers that are occurring right now, and I feel very strongly about that. That is not the American way.”
~Governor Pat McCrory, said.
I have declared a State of Emergency & initiated efforts to deploy the Nat'l Guard & Highway Patrol to assist local law enforcement in CLT
Police used riot gear, tear gas, flash bangs and batons to disperse the crowd rioting after Keith Scott’s death, which went viral after Scott’s daughter claimed he wasn’t carrying a gun but was instead carrying a book when he was fatally shot by officer Brentley Vinson. This story was corroborated by a neighbor witness who says a “book fell off his lap.” Until police release the dash cam video, the truth will remain up in the air.
Some rioters threw glass bottles at police and some shot fireworks at the officers. While some protesters marched peacefully, there was looting of a local sports store the NASCAR Hall of Fame and windows were smashed at local businesses and hotels. Rioters also stormed onto the highway, stopping traffic jumping on vehicles and smashing car windows with rocks.
CNN reporter Ed Lavandera was knocked down on live television by a rioter while attempting to report on the scene.
“We were just doing the report and I didn’t see it coming. All I heard was someone yelling at me that I needed to ‘tell the truth’ and the next thing you know I got kind of blindsided,” said Lavandera.
As many rioters were treating Charlotte like a race war, the police responded with the same level of aggression. One ex-military service member, 24-year-old Sage Lawson of Reidsville, NC, told the The Guardian, “They’re treating us like we’re in a war zone we couldn’t do this to people in Afghanistan. They can snatch people out of a crowd and just throw them in a van. We couldn’t do that in war.”
Calling for peace, Keith Scott’s wife Rakeiya Scott issued a statement, “As a family, we respect the rights of those who wish to protest, but we ask that people protest peacefully. Please do not hurt people or members of law enforcement, damage property or take things that do not belong to you in the name of protesting.”
Many have contended that Keith Scott was lawfully carrying a gun, as North Carolina is an open carry state. While the dash cam video may eventually tell the truth on whether Scott’s shooting was justified, Scott’s wife has rightfully told protestors – don’t damage people or property. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
Online, several hackers affiliated with the online hacktivist collective Anonymous called for website sit in’s or DDoS attacks to take down the city police and state government websites in response to the way the police reacted to protesters.
For the people on both sides of the Black Lives Matter divide, remember – George Soros is paying millions to inflame this situation. As Americans, black and white, red and blue, we need to talk to each other. We can solve America’s policing issues and create a new peace in our country.
A new dangerous rule by the IRS can retroactively tax any business league, religious organization, labor union, policy advocacy group, educational institutions and more.
With extremely broad provisions, this law could turn the already predatory agency into a direct threat to all non-profit groups’ constitutional free speech rights.
Will the IRS silence your free speech in 2016?
The proposed rule [REG–134417–13] puts accountants in charge of determining if your organization’s free speech is in anyway electioneering. Even just mentioning a candidate could get a group retroactively taxed. It is specifically referring to any time between 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary.
The rest of the year, your organization is fine, but then around the election, you might get a government enforced muzzle or massive fines that can and will ruin organizations if they have their way. This is the most radical law against public criticism of politicians in our nation ever.
This law could silence hundreds of thousands of organizations that discuss, analyze, or advocate for public policy.
The rules claim to be an attempt to “clarify” what makes an activity “political” and therefore cannot be counted toward a nonprofit organization’s purpose. They could include: posting a candidate’s voting record, having voter registration cards, get-out-the-vote efforts, voter guides, candidate questionnaires, discussing issues “related” to candidates, having the name of a candidate on a non-profit’s website, even if it was posted before they were a candidate and more.
In response to this, a bi-partisan organization, the First Amendment Alliance is partnering together with others to ensure the inherent right to free speech is protected. If Congress does not act by October 1st 2016, the impact these IRS rules could have on nonprofits of all types could be devastating.
The Tax Revolution Institute’s First Amendment Alliance will raise awareness about the full impact of these rules and organize action to prevent their implementation.
They are quickly seeking any help they can get and most importantly people who endorse their fight. Any organization that want’s free speech to reign, must contact the organization to have their references put on their website as part of their online petition.
