Two men narrowly escaped being hit last night when between 15 and 20 shots were fired in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen in what appears to be a turf war between immigrant gangs and the Hell’s Angels biker organization.

The two men were sitting on a bench when bursts of fire were shot through a passageway leading to Jægersborggade street.

Signal
Deputy Chief Superintendant Poul B. Hansen of the Copenhagen Police said the shots were in all probability ‘a hefty signal to bikers’ who hang out nearby and run the cannabis trade in the area.

Shots were fired from 50 metres in what Hansen said was close to attempted homicide if attackers had actually seen the two men on the bench.

Several cars were hit by the shots and impact marks were found in a wall in Jægersborggade street.

Arrests
Police detained six young immigrants on Monday evening although it was unclear whether the detentions had anything to do with attacks against biker hangouts over the past week or so.

Three were arrested in northwestern Copenhagen and three others were detained around Blågårds Plads square in Nørrebro. A loaded pistol was found under the passenger seat of the car in which the first three were detained.

“It is too early to say whether the six people can be connected to any of the shootings. Initially they are to be charged with the illegal possession of weapons,” the police spokesman said.

Three attacks
Police were called out three times during the night as a result of street shootings. No-one was hit during the attacks. Around midnight a car was also set alight in front of a Hell’s Angels clubhouse on Lindegreens Allé.
