COPENHAGEN, Feb 15 – One person was shot in the head and two policemen were shot in the arm and leg in central Copenhagen, police said in a statement early Sunday. It was not confirmed if the incident was related to Saturday’s deadly shooting at a cultural centre in Copenhagen where a debate on Islam and free speech was being held.
“We cannot say anything about the condition of the injured yet,” Copenhagen police said. “The perpetrator fled on foot,” it said. The shooting took place in Krystalgade, a street that is home to Copenhagen’s main synagogue. The nearby Noerreport train station, one of the country’s busiest, had been evacuated and trains were not stopping there, Danish news agency Ritzau reported, quoting train operator DSB.
