Three people have been killed and four others are in critical condition after a shooting at a shopping centre in Copenhagen.
A 22-year-old Danish man was arrested after the shooting, Copenhagen police inspector Soren Thomassen told reporters. Adding there was no indication that anyone else was involved in the attack, though police were still investigating. Speaking at a press conference on Monday morning, Mr Thomassen said the gunman most likely acted alone and selected his victims at random.
The shooting happened in the late afternoon at Field’s, one of the biggest shopping centres in Scandinavia. Located on the outskirts of the Danish capital. Mr Thomassen said the victims included a man in his 40s and two “young people” – two Danes and one Russian citizen. Several others were injured, four of them – two Danes and two Swedes – critically, he added.
Mr Thomassen earlier said it was too early to speculate on the motive for the shooting. Which happened in the late afternoon at Field’s, one of the biggest shopping centres in Scandinavia. Located on the outskirts of the Danish capital. He said police received the first reports of a shooting at 5.37 pm, and arrested the suspect 11 minutes later.
