Spokesman Bjor Blixter said Thursday the eatery was full when men with automatic weapons opened fire late Wednesday, and some of those wounded may have been ordinary guests.

Blixter said there were known gang members inside the restaurant in the suburb of Biskopsgarden, adding the shooting spree was likely related to gang feuds. He declined to give details on the men.

The victims were two men in their 20s.

No arrests have been made and police were still searching for a possible getaway car.
