Police received a report of the shooting, which occurred at the Red Square park area, which is located close to Nørrebro Station, at 10:17pm on Sunday. No casualties or injuries are reported.
“I can confirm there has been a shooting in Nørrebro. We are investigating the incident and cannot say any more at the current time,” a police spokesperson told newspaper Politiken.
A string of shootings took place in the neighbourhood during the second half of 2017, resulting in three deaths and a number of injuries. The violence was linked to gang-related organised crime.
In November, a ceasefire was reported to have been agreed between rival gangs and a police ordinance zone, which had been put in place as a measure against armed violence, was discontinued in December.
