“The Sweden police were called out at around 1.30 a.m. after witnesses reported hearing what sounded like gunshots,” reports The Local

It could be recalled that Ndella was on August 28 allegedly shot to death by unknown gunmen but police investigators were said to have suspected that her alleged killers have missed her husband who might be their target.

Sources told this medium that no reason has been advanced as to the reasons for the killing of Ndella or her husband being the suspected target by the killers,” a source said.

Ndella was found injured on the scene, inside the apartment, and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

But at 7.19 a.m. she was pronounced dead due to sustained gun injuries.

The Swedish newspaper said the suspected crime scene was cordoned off for a forensic investigation and police were set to spend the morning knocking on doors in the surrounding suburbs to collect witness statements and more information.

However, there were no arrests made on any in connection to the shooting.

The shooting came just days after a woman in her 30s was shot and killed in Malmö.

Female shooting victims are relatively rare in Sweden, in 2018, alone only one woman was killed with a gun.

The report stated that out of 108 cases of deadly violence, 33 of the victims were women, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention.
