An apparent assassination attempt on leading Hells Angels’ member Brian Sandberg as he ate in a restaurant in Hellerup, Copenhagen, has resulted in another member of the gang being shot.

 

Sandberg and five other gang members were sitting at a table in a sushi restaurant in Hellerup last night when an unknown assailant fired about seven shots at the group.

 

Dennis Brodthagen, a member of the Hells Angels club in Østerbro, was hit by a bullet behind the ear and had his jaw damaged. The 36-year-old was rushed to Rigshospitalet and is reportedly in a stable condition.

None of the restaurant’s 15 other patrons were injured in the attack.

 

The shooter escaped the scene and a vehicle was found burnt out in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, about an hour later.

 

Sandberg lives near the restaurant in the exclusive neighbourhood, which is home to some of Denmark’s wealthiest families.

 

It is not the first time an attempt has been made on his life. Most recently in January, Sandberg was shot at close range while sitting in a city centre juice bar. The thick glass fronted façade and his heavy jacket were said to have saved his life.
