Several people were killed Sunday in a shooting at a shopping mall in Copenhagen, Denmark—and authorities have arrested a 22-year-old suspect, police said.

Key Facts

Copenhagen Police Inspector Soren Thomassen said during a press conference several people had died and several others were injured at the Field’s shopping mall in southern Copenhagen, according to translations by the Associated Press and Reuters.

Copenhagen Police said in a statement officers responded to the reported shooting at around 5:36 p.m. local time.

Officers took a 22-year-old Danish man into custody shortly after arriving on the scene, and Thomassen said police don’t believe there was more than one shooter.

Copenhagen Mayor Sophie H. Andersen said in a tweet it is unclear how many people were injured or killed, and called the shooting—a rarity in Denmark—very serious.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

What We Don’t Know

Thomassen said authorities have not determined a motive for the shooting, but he said terrorism has not been ruled out.
