Swedish police are looking for up to four suspects after two young Somali men were shot dead late Friday night in Stockholm’s Rinkeby neighborhood.

Authorities have identified the deceased as 24 year old Zakarie and and 21 year old Feysal who are believed to have been brothers.

The two men were killed after masked gunmen stormed into a cafe at around 9:30 pm and shot them both. Witnesses reported seeing at least four people leaving the crime scene in a white car with tinted windows immediately after the shooting.

“A friend called and told me what had happened, that people entered [the cafe] and just shot them [dead] in front of everyone,” an unnamed Rinkeby local was cited as telling Swedish tabloid Expressen.

Stockholm police have been tight lipped about any possible motive or suspects as an investigation is still underway.

“We’re working on a number of theories about what’s happened,” police spokesman Mats Eriksson said, without wanting to elaborate neither on the number of suspects or what the motive of the shooting might be.

Rinkeby, the neighborhood where the attack took place has a high concentration of immigrants with up to 90% of residents being either first or second generation immigrants.

No arrests have been made.
