COPENHAGEN – Danish police said Monday that they have arrested two men suspected of helping the gunman who carried out two deadly shooting attacks over the weekend in Copenhagen.

Police in Copenhagen said the arrests were made on Sunday and that the two men will face a custody hearing on Monday.

The defence attorney for one of the two suspects, Michael Juul Eriksen, told public broadcaster DR that the two were accused of giving the gunman shelter and getting rid of a weapon.

The suspect killed two people in his weekend attacks, including a Danish filmmaker and a member of Denmark’s Jewish community. He first opened fire Saturday at a cultural centre hosting a seminar on free speech with an artist who had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad and then later at security forces outside a synagogue, police said. Hours later the suspect was killed in a gun battle with a SWAT team.

Police say the slain gunman was a 22-year-old with a history of violence and may have been inspired by Islamic terrorists – and possibly by the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris. They have not yet released his name.

  1. Hmmm……

    How’s that “multi-culturalism” working out for you Denmark?

    Don’t worry though, Dear Danes……..if the newest crop of Muslim immigrants don’t get the Jews for you….., the Jews will do it for you when they move to Israel.

    How’s that for a trade?

  2. Perhaps if the Danes gave up schoolboy notions and stopped doing the offensive cartoons?

    • Ok, emily…

      and after giving up the freedom to express themselves, perhaps the DANES can follow up with requiring women to cover themselves head to toe in a shrouded covering. Then the DANES can change their curriculum to include lessons on how women shouldn’t be allowed to speak, or to accept the beatings by their husbands. Then the DANES could allow women who have been raped to be buried up to their shoulders and stoned to death to restore the family honour.

      yeah……those silly Danes. If only they would submit, everything would be just fine.

      • Danes don’t have a multicultural policy…..but Muslims have been a part of Europe since Mohammed was around. It’s where some of their best civilization comes from. You should’ve studied history instead of trying to kick sand in people’s faces, Jimmy.

        • Emily,

          If you truly believe that……no one will really be surprised.

          Now….how about addressing the points I actually made?

          Can’t…..can you.

          • LOL not stuff I ‘believe’ Jimmy….actual fact.

            Which you’d know if you looked it up.

            I can’t address your ‘points’….you haven’t any.
