Denmark Prime Minister says attack was ‘heartbreaking and pointless’
Denmark’s Prime Minister says an attack at a shopping centre, in which three people were shot dead was “heartbreaking” and “pointless”.
Two Danish teenagers and a 47 year old Russian citizen died in the shooting in Copenhagen.
Two Swedes and two Danes were also critically wounded in the incident.
A 22 year old man will appear in court later today, charged with killing three people.
Claus Jessen, Editor in Chief at www.newsbrek.dk says they’ve been finding out more about the suspect:
“He’s a 22 year old Danish citizen and he has been having some mental issues. He has been known by the police but not for serious serious offenses. What we’ve been seeing right now which is rather shocking is that he’s been posting videos last week on a YouTube Tech Challenge where he’s is posing with this rifle that he was shooting people with.”
