According to the police, several people were shot in a shopping center in Copenhagen. It was initially unclear how many people were injured and whether there were any deaths. In the meantime, the officers on site have arrested a person, as the police in the Danish capital announced on Sunday evening via Twitter. However, the police initially did not want to make any statement about their identity.
“We are on site, shots have been fired and several people have been hit,” the police said. Those who are still in the building should wait for the police to arrive. All other people should stay away from the area. When the first shots were fired, more than a hundred people ran out of the mall, Danish media reported, citing eyewitnesses.
Field’s is a large shopping center in the relatively new district of Ørestad in the south of Copenhagen. The large multi-purpose hall Royal Arena is also nearby. A sold-out concert by British singer Harry Styles was planned there on Sunday.
