Copenhagen shopping mall Shooting Video,
He is yelling “just kill me” and “it’s not real”.
He is a 22-year-old Dane (most likely mentally ill).
The man filming was looking for his daughter and wasn’t scared at the moment (the video is zoomed in. He was standing far away from him).
Afterward, he showed the recording to the police who helped catch him. A true hero.
As a side note, the man filming was a middle eastern guy, and it doesn’t seem like the gunman is eager to shoot him, so this doesn’t point to a right-wing gunman extremist. Also, witnesses report him just shooting randomly into crowds. More like a mentally unstable person.
Yesterday he shared a couple of videoes on social medias saying drugs used for schizophrenia etc. doesn’t work. In the videoes he pointed a rifle and a gun at his head. Clearly mentally ill.
The person who took the video
The man seems out of balance, to say the least. The person who filmed the perpetrator is on TV2 News now.
He was looking for his daughter and was therefore not afraid at the moment. At the he found her daughter, Both are safe. He was interviewed afterwards on national TV in Denmark.
It was on the basis of his recording that he showed to the police that the police identified the perpetrator and arrested him. He is a hero.
Type of used gun,
It looks to be a legally acquired rifle, a bolt action in 6.5x55mm Swedish, with a 5-shot magazine. To buy such a rifle you must be a member of a gun club and pass a police background check. Very common rifle among sports shooters in Denmark.
