A young man has been critically injured in a shooting incident in Copenhagen on Saturday night. This is the third shooting incident in the Danish capital in three days.
“The man’s condition is very critical,” the Copenhagen police stated in a press briefing late Saturday night.
The shooting took place at a hookah café at an address between Frederiksberg and Nørrebro in the Danish capital. The police were notified of the case at 9:38 PM. There were four or six people present in the room.
The suspected perpetrator fled the scene after the shooting. He is described as a young man. It is unclear whether more people may have been involved.
On Friday, a 17-year-old Swedish boy was shot and killed, and a 15-year-old and a 28-year-old were injured in a hairdresser salon in Islev just outside Copenhagen. On Thursday, a man was shot and killed in Nørrebro.
The police have so far not been able to say whether there may be a connection between the shooting episodes. Still, they have previously stated that the man killed in Nørrebro on Thursday was known to the police in connection with gang activities.
