    The security guard was shot in the chest at close range but the bullet did not manage to penetrate his protective vest. He was not serious injured in the attack.

    The incident happened after the guard saw three man acting suspiciously outside the premises of a company in Östra Karup just after 1am.

    He followed their car for around one kilometre until they pulled over.

    In the ensuing scuffle a gun was produced and a shot was fired at the security guard.
