Danish police say several dead after Copenhagen mall shooting.Earlier tonight, notifications came on my phone, that a shooting took place in a shopping mall. "Oh, another shooting in the USA", was my immediate thought.
But no. Not this time. This time, it was a bit closer to home. It was in a shopping mall in Copenhagen. A 22 year old Danish guy decided to open fire, killing several and wounding others. At a presser, the police would not rule out that it was terrorism, and they had launched a manhunt, as a precaution. They could not rule out, that it was an act of terror. The 22-year old has been arrested.
Public transportation was stopped, and people were not allowed to leave. Likewise, a concert with Harry Styles in Royal Arena was cancelled, and people were not allowed to go to their cars or check into any hotels. I get why they weren't allowed to go to cars or to hotels: The area hadn't been cleared.
So now we enter the sad statistic of mass shootings. The last time we had one, was in 1994, which was a school shooting. Since then, weapons have been banned for private ownership.
However, this lowlife could easily have bought the weapon from some criminal. More information will be available as the investigation progresses.
