According to the AP, the police are looking for at least two suspects who allegedly shot the rapper. The man became one of the most sought-after figures on social media, earning the love and affection of his fans but also the hatred of his opponents, who had expressed their dislike for Einar.
The Sun said the 19-year-old was shot several times in the head and chest outside his apartment building shortly before 11 p.m. Fans of the rapper have gathered outside the set of luxury apartments to pay tribute to him and leave small tokens of their love for him.
What was the motive for the shooting?
The Associated Press said the motive for the shooting remains unclear. But, according to local media like Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, the rapper had received several threats recently. The newspaper mentions, without providing details, that Einar was shot at point-blank range, “execution style.”
The Swedish public broadcaster SVT, reports the rapper’s shooting was gang-related, AP noted. The media are chalking the death of one of the most successful rappers in Stockholm, up to a gang problem, perhaps even mafia related. On various media, they suggest that the young man had ‘gotten involved with dangerous people’.
Authorities administered first aid
The Sun reported that the Swedish rapper was treated by paramedics and even received first aid, but unfortunately he had head and leg injuries that made the process more difficult. The 19-year-old was unconscious when paramedics arrived.
Unfortunately, the gunshot wounds he received proved to be fatal. Einar passed away in front of the apartment where he lived. Since that day, fans have left candles and flowers in his honor, as well as a series of tokens in memory of the rapper as they offer their condolences for the loss of the young man.
Last year, he was kidnapped and raped?
According to the British media, Einar had already received death threats on different occasions. Not only that, last year, the rapper was kidnapped by a rival band in an attempt to ‘get him out of the way’. According to The Sun, Einar was kidnapped and beaten up by rival rappers who allegedly had ties to one of Stockholm’s most violent gangs.
But, the fact that he was kidnapped wasn’t the only thing that drew attention. Local media claim that the kidnappers posted photos of him on social media while he was being held by them and claimed that they sexually assaulted him in an attempt to humiliate him. After he was released, no one was charged with sexual abuse.
The trial that took place
The Sun reported that several people, including rappers Yasin Byn and Haval Khalil, were sentenced to prison for their role in the kidnapping. On social media, some even claimed that it was a strategy to generate publicity, while other people affirm that these young people tend to hang out with members of “the most dangerous gangs.”
The British media also states that the verdict was appealed and the case is currently being examined by the Svea Court of Appeal, which is expected to continue until December. But without Einar to testify, the process could be more complicated than expected; so far, they have not issued statements about it.
