A police investigator inspects bullet holes at the entrance of Krudttoenden cafe in Copenhagen on Sunday where a shooting occurred the day before during a free speech event. Danish police shot and killed a man who was suspected of carrying out the attack at the cafe and also another shooting at a synagogue. Two men were killed in the attacks including a member of Denmark’s Jewish community and five officers were also wounded.

Authorities say the suspected gunman killed by police was 22 years old, had a criminal record, including violence and weapons offenses and had a background in criminal gangs. They didn't release his name.
