The brutal murder of Mikael Janicki has led to calls for action against gangs.

An 18-year-old man was yesterday remanded in custody on suspicion of the murder of father of a young child, Mikael Janicki, who was shot dead in Skärholmen in April. A few days after Mikael’s murder, the 18-year-old was arrested on suspicion of an attempted murder in the Stockholm suburb of Vårberg last year.

On Tuesday, 18-year-old Mohammed Mohammed was arrested on suspicion of the murder of Mikael Janicki and aggravated weapons offenses, according to a detention request.

The murder took place on April 10 in Skärholmen, south of Swedish capitol Stockholm, when Mikael was on his way to the swimming pool with his 12-year-old son, who witnessed the shooting.

The now detained 18-year-old was arrested on Tuesday morning, questioned and arrested just before 1:30 am, and the remand hearing will be held on Wednesday at 13:00.

Known to the police

Mohammed Mohammed has previously been arrested for an attempted murder in Vårberg center in December last year. An attempted murder suspected of having links to the area’s criminal groups.

He was arrested for this crime just six days after the murder of Mikael. The young person who was shot in Vårberg was seriously injured but has recovered.

The police have stated that Mohammed has been active in crime for at least two years, suspected of several robberies as well as attempted theft, assault, vandalism and drug offenses. He was convicted of a minor drug offense in 2022 and acquitted of a robbery early last year when stolen goods were found at his home, which he claimed belonged to a friend.

Mohammed Mohammed came to Sweden as a child from Nineveh, Iraq, in 2007 and became a Swedish citizen just over five years later. He has his family in Sweden and lives in Skärholmen. The investigation is continuing and several people are already suspected of involvement in the murder.
