The man was shot while sitting in his vehicle in Frederiksberg at around 11pm on Thursday. He was hit in the head and in the side of the body by shots fired from outside of a nearby residence. 
The victim also fired shots from his vehicle, police said. 
“We are working to put the puzzle together. As of now, we can see that there were also shots fired from the injured party’s car toward another car that drove away,” police spokesman Kenneth Jensen told Ritzau before the victim had died from his wounds at hospital. 
As of 9.30am on Friday, police had not publicly identified the victim. 
Two suspects have been arrested, a 16-year-old boy and a 25-year-old man. Both are scheduled to make a preliminary court appearance at 12pm on Friday. 
Police on Friday morning had not confirmed that the shooting was gang-related, but there have been a number of recent violent clashes between two rival gangs, Loyal to Familia and Black Jackets.

The woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with theft and information fraud. There are ten victims in the case.

The police suspect the woman of having stolen from citizens whose homes she has visited as part of her work as a domestic worker in various places in Copenhagen.

“She has worked as a domestic helper and has been in people’s homes as an employee,” Bjarke Dalsgaard, deputy police inspector at Copenhagen police, said.

According to the police, the woman has stolen jewellery and cash on ten occasions. In addition, she has stolen debit cards in four cases and withdrawn money using them. The money that has been withdrawn alone adds up to a value of 52,000 kroner.

Copenhagen police received the first report of theft in the case at the beginning of 2022.

According to the police, the 31-year-old domestic helper admitted to one instance of crime (the theft of around 400 kroner) but pleaded not guilty regarding the remaining 13.
