The shooting took place at Field’s mall, south of the capital Copenhagen. Shoppers inside the mall panicked and ran for their lives.

Three people have been killed and some injured, three of them seriously, after a man opened fire on people in Denmark’s largest shopping mall, Danish police said.

The 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged with causing panic. Danish police chief Thomassen (Soeren Thomassen) told the media that the motive for the suspect’s killing was not yet clear, but he did not rule out that the attack was a “terrorist” act.

The shooting took place on Sunday (July 3) at the Field’s mall in the southern Danish capital Copenhagen. Shoppers inside the mall panicked and fled for their lives when the shooting happened.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen issued a statement saying Denmark had been brutally attacked. She offered her condolences to those who lost loved ones and hoped to encourage Danes to come together and support each other during this difficult time.
