Danish police: Three shot at synagogue in new attack in Copenhagen

Three people were wounded at a shooting reported near a Copenhagen synagogue early Sunday morning, less than 24 hours after a gunman opened fire at a cafe in the Danish capital city. 

Danish police said the perpetrator fled on foot after opening fire at the synagogue in the center of the city around 1 a.m. local time.

There was no word on whether Sunday’s shooting turned fatal, but police said one person was hit in the head and two police officers suffered arm and leg wounds, BBC News reported.

It was too early to tell whether Sunday’s shooting was related to one on Saturday that left one civilian dead and three policemen wounded at a cafe where a free speech public forum was taking place.
