COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Several people were killed in a shooting at a Copenhagen shopping mall on Sunday, Danish police said, they had arrested a 22-year-old Danish man and were unable to rule it out as an “act of terrorism”.

Copenhagen police said officers were dispatched to the Field shopping center in the city following reports of a shooting, and have asked those inside to stay and wait for assistance.

There are currently no indications that other shooters are present, police said.

The capital’s main hospital, Rigshospitalet, received a “small group of patients” for treatment, a spokesman told Reuters. The spokesperson added that they have called in additional staff, including surgeons and nurses.

Local media released images showing heavily armed police officers at the scene, as well as people running out of the shopping mall. Footage posted by tabloid Ekstra Bladet shows a person being carried by rescuers into an ambulance on a stretcher.
