Copenhagen shooting: Gunman kills three in Field’s shopping mall

A gunman has killed three people and injured another four at a shopping mall in Denmark’s capital Copenhagen.

Police said the victims were two Danish 17-year-olds and a 47-year old Russian citizen. Two Danes and two Swedes are in critical condition in hospital.

A 22-year-old man, described as “an ethnic Dane”, was arrested minutes after the shooting at Field’s centre.

He had mental health issues and there is no indication of a terror motive, Police chief Soeren Thomassen said.

The suspect, who has not been identified, will face questioning by a judge on Monday.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said Denmark had suffered a cruel attack.

She said she wanted to encourage Danes to stand together and support each other in this difficult time.
