    Two attacks in Copenhagen thus far

    BBC News - Injuries in second Copenhagen shooting

    Several people have been injured after shots were fired near a synagogue in Copenhagen, Danish police say.

    One person was reportedly hit in the head, and two police officers suffered arm and leg injuries. The attacker is believed to have fled.

    It is not clear whether the shooting is connected to an earlier attack on a cafe in the city.

    There, a gunman killed one person and injured three at a free speech debate attended by a Swedish cartoonist.

    Cartoonist Lars Vilks, who has faced death threats over his caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, was unhurt.

    Police warning
    The second shooting took place on Krystalgade street.

    "We cannot say anything about the condition of the injured yet," the Danish police were were quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.

    "The perpetrator fled on foot," they added.

    Eyewitness Rasmus Thau Riddersh told the BBC he was going out for a drink with his friends at the time. He said he did not hear the shots, but later saw a man lying on the street.

    Earlier, Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt described the first attack as a "politically motivated" act of terrorism.


    An audio recording captured the moment the gunmen struck in the first attack (listeners may find content distressing)
    Police launched a massive manhunt after the first shooting.

    They released photographs showing the alleged attacker apparently wearing a purple balaclava and thick puffer jacket.

    The three injured were police officers.

    For now, police have not linked the two attacks, the BBC's Malcolm Brabant reports from Copenhagen.

    But he says that the Danish capital has been abuzz with sirens and helicopters, amid fears that other attacks could be imminent.

    The police have warned residents that it is not safe to be in the city centre.
    The first is relatively obvious, Lars Vilks and a free speech discussion. The second, unmentioned as is usual BBC reportage, was outside a Synagogue. Again, relatively obvious at first glance.

    Here we go again. Thoughts to the victims. Hope there aren't any more gunmen this time.
