The Shooting in Denmark Resulted in Three Fatalities, Not a Terrorist Attack

Shootings are still, too prevalent, everywhere in the world here these days, and it’s still due to the widespread availabilities of armed weapons!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

There was a shooting at a mall in Copenhagen, Denmark on the afternoon of the third, the shooter started firing into the crowd at random, causing three deaths, four wounded, then he was, arrested on site immediately afterwards.  The Denmark police told on the fourth, that they’d already known, that the twenty-two-year-old male suspect has a history of mental illness, that there were no messages that suggested that he had any ties to a terrorist group.

The AFP stated, that the chief of police of Copenhagen, Thomassen stated on the press conference, “the mental hospital knew the identification of the suspect, other than that, I have no comment.” He also sated, that the victims were, randomly selected that there’s no information that showed that this was a terrorist attack, or that the suspect had any other accomplices.

The police stated, that on the social media sites on the evening of the third, there were the video footages of the suspect, and they believed that these footages were factual.  The man in the footages waved around the guns, and, made it look like he was going to shoot himself, and stated that he’d been on “useless anti-psychotics”.

The police and witnesses stated that the gunman wore a capri and a dark short-sleeve shirt, with a rifle, and a knife, started firing off at the random members of the public at around 5:35 in the afternoon at the local crowded mall, Field’s, and it’d scared the shoppers, who ran scattered out of the malls.

A witness, Isabella told the Denmark Broadcasting Company, “my friends and I heard the gunshots, about ten shots, we’d rushed into the restrooms to hide, and found, that inside this tiny restroom, there were, about eleven of us, hiding there.”

The armored police soon arrived, and at 5:48, the twenty-two-year-old gunman was, arrested.

The three killed were a seventeen-year-old Danish boy, a seventeen-year-old Danish girl, two Swedish citizens, one was a fifty-year-old male, and a sixteen-year-old adolescent girl.  Reuters reported that the four were severely injured in the shooting, but are all in stable conditions.

Reuters reported, that for the past week, the Tour de France’s first three stops just got finished up, and thousands of locals headed outdoors to enjoy the celebrations, and yet, on Sunday, the news of the shooting came, shocking the entire nation.  The British group, “One Generation” was set to have a concert on the third in Copenhagen, close to where the shooting had occurred, the concert is now, cancelled.

The PM of Denmark said in a statement, “Our normally safe and beautiful capital had gotten turned upside down.  I want to encourage the people in this country to stand together in this time of hardship, to support one another.”

And so, this still just showed, no matter how safe you think you are, you’re not, because there are guns available everywhere, and too easily accessed too, and, that’s how this world becomes, that much, unsafe, because the widespread availabilities of arms, that almost any and everybody can get her/his hands on.
