Danish police kill suspect in Copenhagen terror attack

Danish police on Sunday said they killed a man believed to have murdered two people in a pair of weekend shootings in Copenhagen.

Police said the suspect, who has not yet been identified, opened fire when officers arrived to monitor a location in the Danish capital city. “We are working under the assumption that it was the same perpetrator who was behind both shooting incidents,” Police Commissioner Torben Molgaard Jensen said.

Authorities launched a widespread manhunt after a gunman killed two and injured five in two attacks, the first on Saturday at a cafe hosting a free speech event, and the second early Sunday outside a synagogue.
