A gunfight broke out just before 3 p.m. on Lundtoftegade in the Nørrebro district in what appears to be part of the ongoing biker-immigrant war.
“One person has possibly been hit in the arm,” says the Copenhagen Police Chief Investigator Peter Steffensen.
According to eyewitnesses a man began shooting at a group of youths on the street outside a building. The young men sought safety in between housing while the gunman made his escape on foot.
Eyewitnesses told an Ekstra Bladet reporter that the young people reappeared shortly afterwards – this time most of them fully armed – and began shooting.
An anonymous eyewitness told bt.dk that the original gunman, who let off four shots, was wearing a black woolen hat. He said that some 30 shots were fired back before police arrived on the scene some 20 minutes later.
