Police arrest 3rd man suspected of helping Copenhagen gunman

Source: Associated Press – COPENHAGEN: Danish police say they have arrested a third man suspected of assisting a gunman who killed two people in attacks in Copenhagen this month.

Police in Copenhagen declined to comment further on the Friday arrest, other than saying the “young man” would face a custody hearing Saturday. The suspect was not named.

A Copenhagen court Thursday gave another four weeks in custody to two other men accused of helping Omar El-Hussein, who used an assault rifle to kill a Danish filmmaker attending a free speech event Feb. 14 in Copenhagen.

Hours later, El-Hussein killed a Jewish security guard outside a synagogue on Feb. 15 with a handgun. Five police officers also were wounded in both episodes. El-Hussein was killed in a police shootout later that day.
