The violence erupted last Thursday. On this day, Rasmus Paludan, the leader of the Strum Kurus Party, a far-right political party in Denmark, organized a protest rally. He was allowed to hold several rallies across Sweden. The burning of the Holy Quran was announced at the rally.

In an online statement, police said three people were probably shot. They are now being treated at the hospital. Three of them have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in crime. The condition of the injured is said to be stable.
Police said the situation had cooled down by Sunday evening. Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Anderson has condemned the violence.
