(ANSA) - COPENHAGEN, 04 JUL - Danish police announced three deaths and several injuries, including three serious ones.

The 22-year-old arrested after the incident is known to law enforcement "but only marginally," Chief Inspector Soren Thomassen said at a press conference.

   The young man, according to witnesses armed with a large rifle, was arrested without violence shortly after the police arrived near the large Fields shopping center, located between the city center and the airport of the Danish capital.

The motives of the suspect, described by police as a 22-year-old "ethnic Dane", remain unclear.

He is known to the police "but only marginally", said Thomassen: "He is not someone we particularly know."

The three victims are a man in his forties and two young people whose age was not specified.

"On social networks we see written that it would be a racist motive, but I cannot say that at the moment we have something that supports" this hypothesis, the head of the investigation specified.

Police have instead confirmed that they are investigating videos posted online that show the suspect pointing weapons to his head and that would put his psychiatric conditions into question.

Earlier, the investigators had refused to rule out an act of terrorism.
