SWEDEN, 10 NOV 2023: Three men in their twenties have been convicted to life imprisonment for the shooting and killing of a 25-year-old in Söderhamn last year. A 20-year-old was severely wounded in the same shooting. The incident was part of an ongoing turf war of narcotics dealing gangs in the Hälsingland region of Sweden, police says. Three suspects were convicted to 1 to 3 years in jail for aiding in the crime. A seventh suspect, a 32-year-old woman who was romantically involved with one of the convicted, was sentenced to community service. A life sentence in Sweden means convicts will spend 18 to 25 years behind bars.
