Dead Suspect in Copenhagen Attacks ID'd as 22-Year-Old

The gunman killed by Danish police early Sunday — who is believed to be responsible for killing two people and injuring five in back-to-back attacks at a freedom of speech event and at a Copenhagen synagogue Saturday — was a 22-year-old citizen of Denmark, police said later in the day. The young man, whose name has not been released, was known to police because of past criminal acts involving "violations of the Arms Act and violence," according to a statement from the Copenhagen Police. The suspect was shot and killed by police after opening fire on officers who were investigating the two attacks, according to the statement.
