City on LOCKDOWN: Gunman shot after he goes on rampage in busy tourist spot

Officers say the incident at Tivoli Gardens is probably not terror-related.

Local pub owner Michael told the Ekstra Bladet that he was about to open the pub when he heard four to five gunshots.

He said: “Then came a dozen shocked people, including tourists who wept and were completely out of it.

“I let them in at the pub, and got them out in the kitchen so they were safe.”

The footage shows armed police with raised guns around HC Andersens Boulevard.
