Copenhagen shootings Police kill ‘gunman’ after two attacks: Breaking News
Police in Copenhagen say they have shot dead a man they believe was behind two deadly attacks in the Danish capital hours earlier.
Police say they killed the man in the Norrebro district after he opened fire on them.
It came after one person was killed and two injured during a free speech debate in a cafe on Saturday.
In the second attack, a Jewish man was killed and two police officers wounded near the city’s main synagogue.
Police say they do not believe any other people were involved in the attacks.
The BBC’s Malcolm Brabant in Copenhagen says the city has been on high alert after the shootings.
Early on Sunday, police said they had been keeping an address under observation in the district of Norrebro, waiting for the occupant to return.
When he appeared, he noticed the officers, pulled out a gun and opened fire, police said. They returned fire and shot him dead.
Norrebro is a predominantly immigrant district of Copenhagen, about three miles (5km) away from the synagogue where the shooting took place just hours earlier.
Police warned residents that it was not safe to be in the city centre, although they stressed that there was no curfew in force.
A massive manhunt was launched after the first shooting, which took place during a free speech debate attended by a Swedish cartoonist.
An audio recording, obtained exclusively by the BBC, revealed the moments leading up to the attack.

Filming Frustrates Williamsburg Hasidic Community
WILLIAMSBURG – Some Jewish people in Williamsburg say the city is being inconsiderate of their religious beliefs by permitting TV and movie shoots to take place in the area on Saturdays.
The New York City Department of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting indicates that it tries to post no parking signs in anticipation of an upcoming shoot as soon as possible. However, residents on Division Street say signs asking residents to move their cars last Saturday by 9 a.m. were not posted until Friday.
They say they did not have any time to move their cars because they were observing the Sabbath. Some cars were ticketed.
The residents agree that TV and movie shoots are a boost for the economy, but they are asking for a little sensitivity when it comes to their faith.
A spokesperson for the Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting tells News 12 that the production was in communication with the community for several days and that the no parking signs were posted on Thursday, Feb. 5.
Even if they are given ample time to move cars, some Jewish residents ask that no shoots ever be scheduled on Jewish High Holy Days.
