A young man has been injured by gunfire from the police in Dragør on Sunday night. This is stated by the Independent Police Complaints Authority (DUP).
Copenhagen Police reported the episode to the Police Complaints Authority at 02.23.
The man is hospitalized. The relatives of the injured have been notified, informs DUP.
How the contact between the police and the younger man arose, and what happened in the prelude, DUP does not immediately say anything about.
In the Copenhagen Police, a duty officer refuses to comment, as the case is now being investigated by the DUP.
It is established practice that the independent authority moves out and conducts investigations when a citizen has been seriously injured or died in the meeting with the police.
In Dragør, shots were fired in connection with “a police business”, reads a brief press release.
