A man wounded in a shooting in a shopping centre in Sweden Friday has died, police said, as a woman hurt in the same attack remained in hospital.

โ€œThe man has succumbed to his injuries,โ€ police said in a statement, adding that the woman was receiving medical treatment.

Police earlier said they had arrested the suspected shooter in the incident in the southern city of Malmo.

They ruled out a possible โ€œterroristโ€ motive and said the shooting appeared to be โ€œan isolated incident connected to criminal groupsโ€.

Local media quoted eyewitnesses as saying the suspect had shot indiscriminately into the crowd, but the police did not confirm this.

โ€œWe believe that the immediate danger is now over,โ€ a police spokeswoman said.

In July, three people were killed in a shooting in a shopping mall in the Danish capital of Copenhagen, around 30 kilometres (18 miles) from Malmo.
