Shooting at Bandidos clubhouse could be linked to earlier gang conflict

Residents of Helsingør neighbourhood awoken by gunshots

Police in Helsingør were alerted in the early hours of the morning to shots being fired at a Bandidos biker gang clubhouse in the southeastern part of the town. The building was hit, but no-one was injured.

The incident follows an attack last week on a 19-year-old man in the close-by Vapnagård housing estate, which has been linked to a gang conflict between the Bandidos and the immigrant gang Loyal to Familia (LTF).

Police aren’t ruling out a connection between the two incidents.

“We can’t rule out that the incident is a continuation of the conflict between LTF and Bandidos in Vapnegård last week,” Steffen Østergaard of North Zealand Police said.

The area around the clubhouse is cordoned off by police while forensic investigations are carried out.
