“He apparently has ties to [militant Islamist group] Millatu Ibrahim and sympathies for IS,” police said in a statement, using one of the many names for the Islamic State terrorist group.Saying the man was a Danish citizen who had come to the country from Bosnia when he was four years old, police said there was “currently no evidence that [his alleged terrorist sympathies] has influenced the shooting incidents.”
The detainee, critically injured in a shootout with police, faces a range of charges:
In addition to three counts of attempted murder, he faces preliminary charges of possessing a firearm and trafficking 48 kilos of cannabis, 2.7 kilos of skunk — a powerful type of marijuana — and over 1,800 joints, according to Danish news agency Ritzau.
Better to kill a couple of Danish cops rather than get nabbed for marijuana trafficking. Right.
