Jacques Posted July 3, 2022 Report Share Posted July 3, 2022 To those in the UK or elsewhere who wonder what happened around 5:30 pm today, there's been a mass shooting in the big shopping center Fields on Amager (an island) in Copenhagen. A single 22 y.o. white ethnical Danish male went into the shopping center and began shooting here and there with what looks like a hunting rifle. He managed to kill at least 3, and wound at least 4 or more, before he ran away, out of the center and got caught by Danish police. A huge manhunt in taking place in both Copenhagen, Sjælland (the whole island) and potentially all of Denmark, right now. There's been special anti terror squad at more placed in or around Copenhagen, knocking down doors and into apartment(-s). Police helis are swarming over Copenhagen as well. Very little is open information right now, so expect corrections. No confirmation if he was alone or acting together with more shooters so far. But it looks to be a single individual. More than 20 ambulances, the huge surgery truck which can unfold to become a mobile surgery center for up to 40 people at a time, and lots of special personel to counteract further incidents etc. Area was locked down in a 2 km circle and now more than 10.000 people from Royal Arena which should have housed a Harry Styles concert are being moved by police with locked down metro trains to the other end of Copenhagen, to receive help and transport home. There is a further location on Amager, where people can give witness explanations and receive psychological help. This will go on for several days, Copenhagen Police says. Much police has been called to Copenhagen right after the first call about the shooting. No rumors about why, nor any explanations so far. Albeit the police arrived really quickly and caught whom they believe to be the murderer, many people ran out from the center, including minors bathed in blood, simply just standing stil at a nearby street, totally shocked not able to speak for a while. They are all cared for immediately. From what we know, there were really many people in the center today, because of Tour de France, newly educated high school students and the concert, but all shop owners shouted to customers to enter their shops, then rolled down security gates and kept everyone safe, until police could escort them to further safety. This has been trained. That is what we know so far. My condolences to those who lost their loved ones, the injured and all else affected.
