 Crime: Gunman to face judge for questioning - Copenhagen shooting 


A 22-year-old man suspected of killing three people at a shopping centre in Denmark's capital Copenhagen is due to appear before a judge for questioning.

Two Danish citizens, both aged 17, and a 47-year-old Russian citizen were killed in Sunday's attack.

The suspect had mental health issues and there is no indication of a terror motive, police say.

He had a rifle and a knife and his shooting was random - "not motivated by gender or anything else" - they said.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, police chief Soeren Thomassen said they believed the suspect - described as "an ethnic Dane" - was acting alone and was not helped by anyone else.
