Several people killed in Copenhagen mall shooting, police say

A shooting at a mall in Copenhagen left several people dead, local police said Sunday.

One person has been arrested, Copenhagen Head of Police Soren Thomassen told reporters at a news conference. He described the suspect as a 22-year-old ethnic Dane.

The shooting occurred Sunday in the vicinity of Field’s, a shopping center in the Danish capital, police said earlier.

Social media footage showed people running through the mall and heavily armed law enforcement officers on the scene.

At least three people have been hospitalized, according to a spokesman for Rigshospitalet, Denmark’s largest hospital.

Extra staff have also been called in to deal with emergency, the spokesman said.

Thomassen said police cannot rule out the incident as terror-related, and that an extensive police investigation is ongoing throughout the country.
