Police report arrest: shots in Copenhagen shopping center - several people hit

Shots are fired in a large shopping center in the Danish capital Copenhagen. The police reported that people were hit, but it is unclear whether there have been any deaths. It is also not yet known who fired the shots. Shortly after the incident, the police reported an arrest.

Several people were shot in a shopping center in Copenhagen. This was announced by the police in the Danish capital via Twitter. It is still unclear how many people were injured and whether there are any dead. The police are in action with a large contingent. More than a hundred people ran out of the building after the shots were fired.

Shortly after the initial tweets, police wrote that one person had been arrested in connection with the shooting. There was no information on the identity of the person. It is unclear whether the situation is now under control. The emergency services are still massively present and are working to get an overview, the police wrote.

An eyewitness told broadcaster DR that he heard three or four very loud bangs while he was in a store with his family. Then other people ran into the store and reported shots, after which he and his family fled through an emergency exit, the man said.

Witnesses also told the newspaper "Jyllands-Posten" that they had heard shots. "You didn't know what was happening. Suddenly chaos broke out everywhere," 20-year-old Emilie Jeppesen told the newspaper. Her friend Astrid Kofoed Jørgensen said: "Everyone in the restaurant was sent to the kitchen, then we sat there and we could hear three or four shots."

The shopping center is the shopping mall "Field's". This is located in the Amager district between the city center and the airport. The large multi-purpose hall Royal Arena is also nearby. A sold-out concert by British singer Harry Styles was planned there on Sunday.
