Shooting At Copenhagen Free Speech Event, Danish Media Reports

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Shots were fired Saturday at a cafe in Copenhagen that was hosting a freedom of speech event organized by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced numerous threats for caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad.

Some 30 bullet holes ripped through the window of the Krudttoenden cafe and at least two people were taken away on stretchers, including a uniformed police officer, the TV2 channel said Saturday.

"I heard someone firing with an automatic weapons and someone shouting. Police returned the fire and I hid behind the bar. I felt surreal, like in a movie," Niels Ivar Larsen, one of the speakers at the event, told the TV2 channel.

Helle Merete Brix, one of the event's organizers, told The Associated Press that Vilks was at the meeting but not injured.

"I saw a masked man running past," she said. "A couple of police officers were injured." (...)

"The secret to happiness is freedom... And the secret to freedom is courage."

“My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.” Carl Schurz

"Both oligarch and tyrant mistrust the people, and therefore deprive them of their arms."

"Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must." Thucydides

The shooter has been killed by the police.

Quote:Police in Copenhagen say they have shot dead a man they believe was behind two deadly attacks in the Danish capital hours earlier.

Police say they killed the man in the Norrebro district after he opened fire on them.

Another attack on Jews, too.

Quote:Copenhagen synagogue shooting kills one

A second Copenhagen shooting at a bears a lot of resemblance to last month's bloody terror attacks in Paris. A total of three have now died in the Copenhagen shootings.

A man gunned down outside a Copenhagen synagogue early Sunday in one of three lethal shootings in the Danish capital was Jewish, a Jewish community group said on Sunday.

Michael Gelvan, chairman of the Nordic Jewish Security Council, told AFP that a bar mitzvah, or Jewish coming of age ceremony, had been underway inside the synagogue and that the "young man" had been responsible for "access control" when he was shot.
