The Local understands that up to 15 people were injured in the shooting. Eight of them remain in hospital.
The TT news agency has been speaking to other businesses close to where the shooting happened.
Multiple reports in the Swedish media are now suggesting that two men wearing skull masks were seen at the scene of the crime.
But police have told The Local that this is not something they will comment on for the moment.
A witness who calls himself simply ‘Rocky’ has been speaking to various Swedish media about the shooting. He says he heard a loud noise while he was watching Champion’s League football on television in the bar, before realizing that one of his friends had been hurt.
“I saw that my friend was bleeding,” he told Swedish broadcaster SVT. “I tried to stop the bleeding as best as I could with my hand,” he said.
The man has also reported seeing a “lifeless body” on the pavement outside the pub.
Local crime reporter Per Sydvik who works for the GP newspaper has told Swedish news network SVT he is convinced that the shooting is gang-related.
“There is something terrible about attempting to murder people at a pub where there are regular customers. It feels very much like a traditional mafia execution,” he said.
