Just like in Paris, first shootings are against free speech, the second shooting goes after the Jews.

One Dead, Two Policemen Wounded in Attack at Copenhagen Synagogue
One civilian was killed and two policemen were wounded early Sunday morning in a shooting attack outside the Great Synagogue in central Copenhagen, Denmark, according to multiple media reports.
The civilian, a Jewish community member guarding the house of worship during a bat-mitzva celebration, was shot in the head and the two policemen were shot in the arm and leg in the attack, according to the reports. Officials say it is unclear if the attack is connected to an earlier deadly assault on a cafe in the city.
The gunman fled the scene on foot, and a manhunt is underway, The Times of Israel reported.
“It started with police being down at the site. A person comes up and starts to shoot,” police spokesman Allan Teddy Wadsworth-Hansen said.
Sky News cameraman Pete Milnes, who was near the scene of the attack, said: “There was a succession of about six or seven gunshots.
“Within a minute or so, armed police were on the scene, a helicopter was hovering overhead. I witnessed police apprehend an individual who was handcuffed and later released.
“There was 20 to 30 armed police officers with semi-automatic rifles shouting at locals to stay indoors and close windows.”

‘They tried to shoot their way in’ Watch
Police in Copenhagen say they have shot dead a man who opened fire on them close to the sites of two earlier attacks in the Danish capital.
They are investigating whether the man might be behind deadly shootings hours earlier at a cafe and near a synagogue.
In the first attack, one person was killed and two injured during a free speech debate in a cafe.
In the second, a civilian was killed and two police officers wounded near the city’s main synagogue.
It was not immediately clear how the shootings may have been connected.
Early on Sunday, police said they had shot dead a man near a railway station in the neighbourhood of Noerrebro where they had been keeping an address under observation.
