A shooting occurred near Nørrebrogade, the high street in the Nørrebro neighbourhood of Copenhagen, on Sunday evening.


Nobody is reported to have been injured during the incident, which was confirmed by Copenhagen Police in a tweet.

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.
