COPENHAGEN SHOOTING: Filmmaker Finn Norgaard was identified as the 55-year-old male killed at Krudttoenden cafe in north Copenhagen after lone gunman, thought to be a jihadi, opened fire during a free speech event.
A second man was killed outside a synagogue 10 hours later. He has been identified as Dan Uzan, a 37-year-old security guard. He was shot in the head as he stood outside the Great Synagogue during a Bat Mitzvah.
Danish police have shot and killed the suspected gunman who is responsible for the two attacks on Copenhagen. The suspect was shot and killed Sunday morning as he emerged from the Norrebro metro station, which police had earlier closed.
Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks is said to have been the target of the first cafe shooting. He had portrayed the Prophet Mohammed as a dog.
According to the Guardian, the suspect “was known to Danish intelligence.” Jens Madsen, the head of the country’s security service, said “the killer may have been “inspired by militant Islamist propaganda issued by IS [Islamic State] and other terror organisations”, but it was not yet known whether he had travelled to Iraq or Syria before the attacks,” the newspaper reports.
