BREAKING: A Second Gunfire Incident in Copenhagen Today; Attacker Injured Cops Near Synagogue

Via the BBC, news of a second gun attack in the Danish capital:

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 had 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.

Danish police released this photo of the gunman in the Vilks attack

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.
