A man was shot in the leg last night on Amager but is not helping the police much with the investigation

Just after 1am this morning, a 31-year-old man ran into a Shell petrol station on Vermlandsgade on Amager and screamed that he had been shot in the leg.

An ambulance and the police were immediately called to the scene, but the police do not know where the shooting occurred because the victim has refused to co-operate.  

“He is not very helpful and does not want to tell us about the scene of crime,” Copenhagen Police chief investigator, Robert Jensen, told Ritzau.

The man, who was hit in the thigh by one bullet and is now out of danger, is known to the police, but they do not suspect that the incident is related to the ongoing gang conflict. The latest gang-related shooting victim, a 19-year-old man who was shot in the neck last Thursday, is currently in a coma at Rigshospitalet.
