COPENHAGEN, July 4: Three people were killed and three are in critical condition after a shooting at a shopping centre in Copenhagen on Sunday.
Danish police said they had arrested a 22-year-old Danish man and charged him with manslaughter but could not rule out it was an “act of terrorism.”
Officials said the shooter had killed a man in his forties and two “young people”, a man and a woman.
The suspect was apprehended at 5:48 P.M. local time, carrying a rifle and ammunition.
The attack rocked Denmark at the end of an otherwise joyful week, just after it hosted the first three stages of the Tour De France cycle race.
Police launched a massive search operation throughout the local Zealand region early Sunday evening in search of any accomplices.
At the same time, English singer-songwriter Harry Styles expressed his condolences over the shooting on his Twitter account.
To pay respect to the victims, he has officially cancelled a concert scheduled to be played in the same city on Sunday, July 10.- TVS
