ANOTHER ATTACK 3 Wounded in Shooting at Copenhagen Synagogue, Hours After Cafe Attack
COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – One person was shot in the head and two police were wounded in an attack on a synagogue in central Copenhagen, Danish police said, adding that it was too early to say whether the incident was connected to an earlier one at an arts cafe.
Danish television station TV2 said a large metro and train station nearby, Norreport, was being evacuated.
The news followed a shooting attack earlier Saturday on a cafe which hosted a debate on freedom of speech and was attended by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has been threatened with death for his cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad. One man died in that attack, and police said a suspect was still at large.

Police said it was too early to say whether the two shootings were related.
The shooting at the synagogue tonight comes as police were looking for at least one gunman day in the attack earlier in the at the Krudttoenden cafe, which Danish officials described as terrorism and an assassination attempt.
“We feel certain now that it is a politically motivated attack, and thereby it is a terrorist attack,” Danish Prime Minister Helle Thornin-Schmidt said of the cafe shooting.
