Two men in custody for participating in “internal” gang violence

A 26-year-old Hells Angels member and a 32-year-old prospective member of the gang are in Copenhagen Police custody, charged with attempted murder and several weapons violations. The men were taken into custody in connection with an attack last week on two men who were beaten, shot and stabbed. The victims were said to be members of the gang who found themselves in “bad standing" with their fellow gang members.

Police do not yet know whether one of the two guns they confiscated from the suspects was the weapon used to shoot one of the victims in the thigh.

Police said that help from the public led them to the suspects. The men will appear before a judge later today where it will be decided if the evidence that police have collected is strong enough to hold the suspects.
