Two Dead, Five Wounded in Two Shootings within Hours in Copenhagen
Two separate incidence of shootings within hours in Copenhagen left two dead and five police officers wounded. The first shooting took place when a masked gunman opened fire at a free speech event at Krudttoenden cultural centre in Copenhagen on Saturday, while the other occurred hours later outside a synagogue on early Sunday. The free speech event was being attended by a Swedish artist, Lars Vilks, who had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad and was threatened with death for it. The gunman got away in both the shootings. The police could not confirm whether both the shootings had any connection, but did not rule it out either.
