Doctors have been unable to save the life of a 27-year-old man who was shot at close quarters yesterday evening in Frederiksberg in Copenhagen.

“Two shots to the chest on Finsensvej in Frederiksberg on Wednesday evening have cost a 27-year-old man his life,” Copenhagen Police say in a news release.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area of the incident at Finsensvej near Fasanvej yesterday at around 6.05 p.m. for help in order to track the movements of the attacker.

“A young man, around 20 years of age, perhaps between 20 and 25. 160-165 cm in height and normal to thin of build. He was wearing a black, hip-long winter coat, a dark head covering and black tracksuit trousers. The coat probably had a hood. Witnesses have said he had a white plastic bag with something blue on it,” says Head of Copenhagen Police Gang Unit Lau Thygesen.

According to witness reports the man was seen leaving the area along Finsensvej, and away from Copenhagen.

Yesterday’s shooting was the third episode around Copenhagen this week.

On Monday a 19-year-old was shot in Skovlunde and on Tuesday shots were fired at a 27-year-old man in Høje Gladsaxe, but police are unwilling to say whether they believe the incidents are gang-related.

“We cannot rule out that the two previous shootings were related to this one, but since we don’t yet know who the attacker was, we cannot be more concrete,” Thygesen says.

The head of the National Police investigation unit (NEC) Chief Supt. Michael Tingskov Ask says that police have noted an escalation in gang conflicts around Copenhagen recently.

“The disagreements are about the hash markets in and around Copenhagen as well as personal conflicts,” Ask tells TV2 News.
