Stockholm, Sep 28 (Prensa Latina) Three people were killed in separate incidents near this capital, amid an escalation of violence related to disputes among criminal gangs, local media reported on Thursday.

Two of the deceased were shot and the other victim died in an explosion that damaged five houses. The police described the incident as murder.

The SVT chanel reported that the two fatal shootings brought up to 11 the number of deaths caused by gun violence in September, which was the deadliest month since the police have been counting this statistic.
