    Copenhagen shootings: Police kill 'gunman' after two attacks

    BBC News - Copenhagen shootings: Police kill 'gunman' after two attacks

    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 three police officers injured at 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 video surveillance suggested the same man carried out both attacks. They do not believe any other people were involved.
    Freedom of speech is under attack in Europe. It's becoming increasingly dangerous to express your thoughts or criticize openly. It's also becoming increasingly dangerous to simply be Jewish...

    I'm glad the gunman was taken out but he's only one of many. These copycat attacks are on the rise and it's a massive problem that no one wants to confront.

    You cannot "confront" lone wolves until they attack

    Sounds like the police in Copenhagen confronted it, and with good result.

    These 'confrontations' will continue well into the future until one side wins or loses.

    For most here, probably not in their lifetimes.

    Pity he is dead. Forensic evidence is better if accompanied by interrogation.

    In fact it is possible but will the police, or military, have the balls to do it?

    You're wondering what the motive might be?

    Or one side begins to respond in a serious way.

    What's the guy's name, I wonder.... and is there any speculation as to motive or faction?
