@luvlouaylor we all just stayed quiet and waited for a long time. Then the police came in full amour, with guns, and told us to follow them. So we ran in a long line of people to the outside place, but we saw a lot of blood on the way. I have never been so terrified in my life :((

UPDATE ON THE SHOOTER!!!
the copenhagen police chief said that the man has been charged and will face questioning by a judge on monday. (from bbc news)
it has been confirmed by the police that three people are in a critical condition and other three were killed
my heart goes to ALL the people affected, that lost their loved ones or that have them in the hospital xx
the danish royal family released a statement in which they pay respect to the families of the victims and they say “we do not yet know the full extent of the tragedy, but it is already clear that more people have lost their lives and that even more have been injured”
the police says that there is no sign of an attack of terror.
the three victims that lost their lives have been identified as two danish 17 year olds and a 47 year old russian citizen that lived in denmark.
the people severely injured are now four: two danish women of the age 19 and 40, the other two are swedish citizens, a 50 year old man and a 16 year old girl. (three of them in the same hospital and the other in another one)
one of the people in the hospital remains in a critical condition.
the police said they’re investigating the videos of a man posing with weapons.
the reason why the police are not thinking it might be a terrorist attack is because the shooter has a history of psychiatric problems
