Copenhagen: Turf wars continue

Two men narrowly escaped being hit last night when between 15 and 20 shots were fired in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen in what appears to be a turf war between immigrant gangs and the Hell's Angels biker organization.

The two men were sitting on a bench when bursts of fire were shot through a passageway leading to Jægersborggade street.


Deputy Chief Superintendant Poul B. Hansen of the Copenhagen Police said the shots were in all probability 'a hefty signal to bikers' who hang out nearby and run the cannabis trade in the area.

Shots were fired from 50 metres in what Hansen said was close to attempted homicide if attackers had actually seen the two men on the bench.

Several cars were hit by the shots and impact marks were found in a wall in Jægersborggade street.
