It was at a cafe at which Lars Vilks had frequent debates, on the exact same day, Feb 14 in 2013, 2014.
This was an attempted assassination on Lars Vilks’ life.

Daily Mail:“However, Helle Merete Brix, one of the organisers of the event, said Mr Vilks, 68, had not been injured.
‘I clearly consider this as an attack on Lars Vilks,’ she added, saying she was ushered away with Mr Vilks by one of the Danish police guards.
‘The security guards shouted ‘everyone get out’ and we were being pushed out of the room.
‘They tried to shoot their way into the conference room. I saw one of them running by, wearing a mask.
‘There was no way to tell his face. I’m not even sure if there was one or two.’
British Prime Minister David Cameron tonight sent a message of support to Denmark on Twitter and said: ‘I condemn the shootings in Copenhagen. Freespech must always be protected. My thoughts are with the Danish people’
Ritzau said both Vilks and the French ambassador, who was also attending, were unharmed, but that three police had been wounded. The gathering was billed as a debate on art and blasphemy.
