Employees of public institutions in the area of Copenhagen hardest hit by gangwar shootings are afraid of going to work and their facilities are to have new opening times.

“Due to the extensive use of firearms and insecurity of employees we will be closed from 6 p.m. on weekdays and all weekend,” says a sign on the doors of Blågårdens library and the sports hall 100 metres away. The Støberiet cultural centre is also to be closed at the same times.

“This was a difficult decision,” said Støberiet Leader Bent Erik Krøyer adding: “But we had to do it. We can’t take any chances and I have a responsibility to my employees who feel insecure going home at night.”

Krøyer says that a shooting episode on Saturday in particular brought about the decision.

“It is frightening that the victims were people who were going to a concert at Stengade 30. These could just as well have been people coming to a concert here,” he says.

Food for the elderly
In other developments in the ongoing crisis in the Nørrebro district, elderly residents have had to have their council-prepared meals-on-wheels delivered secretly and with police security due to threats issued against the company responsible for deliveries.

The council decided to stop delivering meals-on-wheels on Monday night after a driver of the Multitrans company which delivers the food was warned out of the area by armed gang members who see the Nørrebro district as their exclusive turf.

According to reports, the reason for the gang’s action was that last week, police arrested a Multitrans driver. DR News says that the driver was a member of the Hells Angels support group AK81, was wearing a bullet-proof vest and had a gun in the cabin.

The current gang warfare in Copenhagen is between immigrant gangs and the Hells Angels and its support group AK81.
