” Danish police said they shot dead a gunman on Sunday who they believe was behind shootings at a free-speech event at a Copenhagen cafe and a nearby synagogue a day earlier.

  The suspect was shot dead on the street outside a train station in the northern part of Copenhagen after he opened fire, police said.”

 

 

 

 

 

” “ There are a number of things indicating we have the right perpetrator, but our technical investigation isn’t complete so we cannot be 100% sure,” said Jørgen Skov, head of the Copenhagen police. “There is nothing to suggest that several perpetrators are involved.”

  Police said the alleged gunman took a cab to an area in the Nørrebro neighborhood, and that they were able to track his whereabouts and link him to the earlier attacks through city and taxi video-camera surveillance.”

” Denmark launched a nationwide manhunt Saturday after two people were killed and several wounded in the two separate attacks.

  The first targeted a seminar on Islam and free speech in the wake of the January attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Police said a man sprayed dozens of gunshots through the plate glass windows of central Copenhagen’s Krudttoenden cafe, where Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks and France’s ambassador to Denmark, François Zimeray, were in attendance. Neither Mr. Vilks nor Mr. Zimeray was injured, but a 55-year-old man died and three security officers were wounded.

  Hours later, police reported another shooting, near a synagogue in downtown Copenhagen, that killed a 37-year-old guard outside a bar mitzvah and wounded two police officers.”
