In a tweet, the police said a person had been arrested in connection with the shooting.

“We’re still there, shots were fired and several people were injured,” police wrote via Google Translate on Twitter.

We work on site.
People in the fields should stay and wait for the police.

All other people should stay away from the fields.”

Police inspector Soren Thomassen, head of the Copenhagen police operations unit, said the suspected gunman, who is being held, is a 22-year-old Dane who was arrested near the Fields shopping center in the southern suburbs of the capital.

“We know there are many dead” and “many wounded,” Thomassen told a news conference, adding that terrorism could not be ruled out.
“We have no information that others were involved. That’s what we know now.”

Police wrote on Twitter that they were still trying to evacuate the mall and that those inside the building should wait until officials arrived.

He did not provide any other details about the victims or combatants, or mention the number of dead or wounded.

The shopping center is located on the outskirts of Copenhagen, opposite an underground line that connects the city center with the international airport.

A major highway also runs next to the fields, which opened in 2004.

A concert by former One Direction member Harry Styles was scheduled for 8 p.m. (1800 GMT; 2 p.m. EST) at the nearby Royal Arena. It was not clear if the ceremony would continue.

Shortly after the shooting, the royal palace said a reception with Crown Prince Frederick linked to a cycling race in France had been cancelled.

The palace said in a statement that the first three stages of the race were held in Denmark this year.

The reception was scheduled to take place aboard a royal yacht moored in Soenderborg, the city where Phase III ended.
