Teenager machineguns family home in Stockholm suburb as gun crime spirals among ... trends now
This is the terrifying moment a teenager armed with an AK-47 fired 15 bullets into the home of a terrified mother and her young child in a Stockholm suburb.
In exclusive footage obtained by MailOnline, bullets are sprayed into the front door with empty cartridge cases bouncing down the stairwell, before the camera focuses on the front door riddled with holes.
A frightened mother, who lives in the block, told MailOnline: 'It was crazy. It wasn't a small gun. It was a Kalashnikov.'
The flat is the home of the ex-girlfriend of a well-known rapper, but she is no longer with him. It looks like it was a scare tactic.
'It is terrible that attacks like this are normalised in the criminal world.'

Sweden has seen at least 15 incidents of homes being sprayed with bullets and a similar number of bombings in the last six weeks as drug gangs, mainly from immigrant communities, battle for control of the streets.
An hour after the apartment shooting, police managed to prevent a potential murder in nearby Hammarbyhöjden.
Officers carrying out surveillance on an address linked to a man in the Dalen network are said to have begun chasing a suspicious car.
The pursuit ended with the car crashing and two boys aged 13 and 14 being arrested after automatic weapons and masks were found inside.
A man who ran from the car was also arrested and is in custody on suspicion of aggravated weapons offences and on suspicion of preparing for murder.
Later that night a man was shot dead on the street in street beside a car park at the Huvudsta Centrum shopping centre, just outside the Kebabkhan Kurdistan restaurant.

The country's organised crime problem even reached London four years ago when a hitman murdered Flamur Beqiri on the doorstep of his home in front of his wife and toddler.
In the latest atrocity to hit the country once known for its peaceful tolerance, a 15-year-old migrant was 'executed' with a shot to the head as he sat in a sushi restaurant in a shopping centre south of Stockholm.
Ali Shafaei, who escaped Taliban persecution and fled Afghanistan in 2019, became the fourth person to be murdered by a gun since Christmas around the Swedish capital.
Swedish police have not commented on the motive for the murder of Ali, and it has not been confirmed by anyone that he was involved in a gang.
But at least one of his friends told local media that he had concerns about some people 'who he was hanging out with'.
It is believed that Ali was lured to his death by another teenager who told him to go to the sushi restaurant in Skogäs, nine miles south of Stockholm.
Witnesses believe they heard two shots as Ali who previously lived in Afghanistan's war-torn Maidan Wardak province was killed at a table just after 6pm on Saturday, January 28.
A woman who arrived seconds later to collect a takeaway tried to give him CPR, but he died at the scene, just 200 yards from the Östra Grundsolan school where he was a pupil.

An array of floral tributes and scores of candles have been left outside the restaurant in a memorial to the teenager who was one of 163,000 asylum seekers granted sanctuary in Sweden since 2015.
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of his murder while a 17-year-old has been held for allegedly aiding and abetting the murder by enticing Ali to the restaurant.
A 16-year-old is in custody on suspicion of protecting the shooter.
One of Ali's friend's told MailOnline: 'He was a good person and really friendly. He took care of his friends and everybody liked him.
I don't know if he was involved in anything. All I know is that he was my friend.
'I don't know if he was involved with anything. All I know is that he was my friend.
'I met him in 2019 when he came from Afghanistan with his family for a better life.
'He never had a problem with teachers. If I heard him talking with teachers, it was almost never a bad thing. I had only seen him at the shopping centre, the day before he was killed.'
Ali's family moved from their home in a crime-ridden suburb of Skogäs to a new first floor apartment around 20 miles away in Rönninge several weeks before he was gunned down.
