A 55-year-old man survives that he was hit by several shots from unknown perpetrators in Bagsværd on Wednesday morning.
A 55-year-old man who was out airing his dog early Wednesday morning has survived after two perpetrators hit him with multiple shots.
This is stated by the Copenhagen West Region Police.
The episode is being investigated as attempted murder.
Police have spoken to witnesses who report two dark-clad people running from the scene. Police suspect two men.
– But we can not rule out anything, says police investigation leader Charlotte Skovby.
Police still like to hear from witnesses who have seen or noticed something. Particularly interested are witnesses who can testify about the two men who were seen running from the scene.
No suspected perpetrators have yet been arrested.
The shots fell on Wednesday around 06.30 at Kornmarken in Bagsværd near the victim’s home.
Here, according to Ekstra Bladet, he was out airing his dog when the shots hit him in a green area at the end of the road.
– We are investigating the incident as an attempted manslaughter, and we are still in an initial phase of collecting all clues and information, Deputy Police Inspector Carsten Lansner said in a press release on Wednesday.
He added that the episode “seems purposeful, but that it is too early to draw conclusions about the motives and reasons behind the incident – including any gang gangs”.
Police would not yet say how many shots the man was hit by – just that it was more than one.
Police are also not ready to say whether it is investigating the attack as being in a gang context.
Copenhagen West Region Police moved out to the scene with several patrols.
– We are present in large numbers around Kornmarken, Bagsværd, after a shooting episode. One person was shot, it initially sounded from the Copenhagen West Region Police on Twitter.
