Cultural Enrichment in Nørrebro

Cultural Enrichment News

Since the “gang war” crisis began in Denmark, a number of innocent people have suffered after being mistaken for members of Hells Angels or the associated organization AK81. People targeted by immigrant gangs may include anyone who rides a Harley, or sports tattoos, or in other ways resembles a member of the biker gang or one of its sympathizers.

The latest incident occurred last night, and seems to have been based on tattoos and a muscular physique.

According to Politiken:

Man shot by mistake

A 23-year-old man was shot and wounded in Copenhagen yesterday evening — police say he was mistaken for a member of the AK81 group.

Copenhagen police believe a young man who was shot and wounded yesterday evening in the Nørrebro district of the capital, was mistaken for a well-known member of the Hells Angels support group AK81.

Shots were fired at the corner of Raadmandsgade and Mimersgade streets from what is believed to have been be a black BMW 525 containing four young immigant men . The target of the attack was a group of young men who police say have nothing to do with the current gang warfare.

“This was a group of bodybuilder-type men with tattoos, and one of them resembles a well-known member of AK81,” the police investigation chief tells Ritzau.

The young man was hit in an arm and leg after 5-6 shots were fired from the car, which then sped away towards Tagensvej street.

Wednesday’s shooting was the third in just over a week. On Wednesday of last week a 26-year-old ethnic Iranian was killed, while last Saturday a 33-year-old ethnic Turk was killed while taking part in a remembrance ceremony for the 26-year-old.
