Malmo police said Sunday the deceased boy was one of the two persons hit after unknown assailants opened fire into a pizza parlor where the victims were at the time of the incident at 9 p.m. local time Saturday.

Witnesses saw the attackers flee the scene on bicycles. The shooting took place just minutes after an explosion in another Malmo district where a bomb set under a car detonated, destroying the vehicle and causing damage to other cars.

Police couldn't say yet if the two incidents were linked.
