On Saturday night, a man was seriously injured in a shooting between Nørrebro and Fredericksburg in Copenhagen. It’s reports Radio Denmark.
Copenhagen police said in a press briefing late on Saturday evening that the man was shot in the head and that the condition was very critical. His condition should be unchanged Sunday morning.
– We don’t know how many shots were fired, but we can say that he was hit by one in the head, says police inspector Rasmus Skofsgaard of Denmark TV 2.
Police are looking for a dark-haired, bearded young man in dark clothes and are looking for witnesses. It is not clear if there are more perpetrators.
The 39-year-old is the fifth man to be shot in three days in the Danish capital. On Thursday, a man in his twenties was killed in Norbro, and on Friday a 17-year-old was killed in Rodover.
Police hypothesis: related to the gang environment
A 21-year-old Swedish-speaking man and an 18-year-old Danish man were charged and jailed for murder on Thursday.
The murder took place on Friday in a hairdressing salon. The victim is a Bulgarian citizen. Two were wounded in the attack, including a 15-year-old who goes to a nearby school.
Police have not yet said whether the killings and shootings were linked.
But they are working on the premise that the incidents are related to the gang environment in Copenhagen, according to Dr.
Politiken writes that the man killed in Norbro on Thursday is known to police in a “gang context”.
So-called visitation areas have now been introduced in many areas of Copenhagen. Among them are Herlev, Rodover, Norrebro and Nordfest. This means that the police are allowed to visit people without specific suspicion.
– The reason for the introduction of visiting areas is a number of violent incidents in Greater Copenhagen, which are considered to be linked to the gang environment, and where firearms were used in several cases, The police writes in a letter.
Not so long ago, the visiting areas in the counties of Brondby, Gladsax and Herleaf were closed.
They were introduced on October 17 due to the violent conflict between the groups in the gang environment in Copenhagen, wrote Police in a press release on December 1.
