Recently, there was a horrific mass shooting in an Oslo gay bar, and now one in Copenhagen. Terrorism has not been ruled out, but it’s likely NOT terrorism.
A gunman opened fire inside a busy shopping mall in Copenhagen on Sunday, killing several people and wounding several others, police said.
A 22-year-old Danish man was arrested, Copenhagen police inspector Søren Thomassen told reporters. It appears no one else is involved.
The inspector 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 malls in Scandinavia, located on the outskirts of the Danish capital. When the shots rang out, some people hid in shops while others fled in a panicked stampede, according to witnesses.
