STOCKHOLM (AP) — An award-winning 19-year-old Swedish rapper was shot to death in southern Stockholm in an incident that media reports on Friday suggested could be gang-related.

The rapper Einar was struck by several bullets in the Hammarby suburb south of central Stockholm and died on the spot late Thursday, police spokesman Ola Osterling told the Swedish news agency TT.

Police are looking for at least two suspects who allegedly shot the rapper.

The motive of the shooting remains unclear but the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported that the rapper had received several threats recently. According to the Swedish public broadcaster SVT, the rapper’s shooting was gang-related.

Einar, whose real name is Nils Gronberg, was born in Stockholm and rose to fame at the age of 16 when his song “Katten i trakten” from his debut album “Forsta klass” topped the Swedish charts in 2019.

He was awarded with the song of the year award in 2019 and the newcomer of the year award a year later.

Sweden has seen a rise in organized crime activity in the past few years and several gang-related shootings have occurred in Stockholm, Goteborg and Malmo.

Multiple Millionaires Made In California On Thanksgiving Weekend; One In Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — This Thanksgiving weekend, two multimillion-dollar winning tickets were sold in California — one in Southern California and the other in Sacramento

Sacramento has been dubbed one of the “luckiest Lottery markets,” due to the number of winners in the area.

A winning Powerball ticket for $1,675,676 was sold at Lichine’s Liquor & Deli on South Land Park Drive in Sacramento. The winning ticket matched five numbers in last night’s drawing, with only the Mega number missing. Lichine’s will profit more than $8,000 from the sale.

The California Lottery says they will not know the identity of the winners until the prizes are claimed.
