    Copenhagen has been rocked by a second shooting just hours after a gunman opened fire at a cafe where a debate on Islam and freedom of speech was underway.
    Danish police have confirmed one person has been shot in the head outside a synagogue while two police officers have been shot in the arm and leg.
    Danish media is reporting police have now cordoned off an area of Krystalgade, a street in central Copenhagen.
    People in Copenhagen are being urged to follow all directions from police and to be alert and aware.
    It is unknown if the shooting is related to an earlier attack, that authorities have labelled a "terrorist act".

    February 15, 2015: One man has been confirmed dead by police following a shooting in Copenhagen labelled a ‘terrorist act’.
    The gunman responsible for killing one person in a cafe where a debate on Islam and freedom of speech was taking place remains on the run.
    The man wore black and and was speaking in Danish when he shot at least 40 bullets through the window.
    Chilling audio of the moment the gunman began shooting has been released. We warn some viewers may find it distressing.

    February 15, 2015: Audio has been released of the moment a gunman opened fire at a free speech rally in Denmark. Warning: Some viewers may find this audio distressing.
    Headlining the event was Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, known for his 2007 caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.
    Vilks has been living under police protection after his controversial cartoons prompted death threats.
    The gunman remains on the run and police have issued a number of photographs of the man they believe is responsible.
    He has been described as 25-30 years old, around 185cm (six feet) tall, with an athletic build.

    Police initially said two suspects had fled the scene in a Volkswagen Polo. The car was found abandoned around two hours after the attack.
    After witness statements indicated there was just one attacker, police later said they were hunting for a lone gunman.
    The terror attack has been condemned by Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.
    "Denmark has today been hit by a cynical act of violence. Everything leads us to believe that the shooting was a political attack and therefore a terrorist act," Ms Thorning-Schmidt said.

    Three police officers were wounded attempting to protect those inside the venue, according to police.
    The fatally shot victim was a 40-year-old Danish man.
    The assault comes at a time of heightened security and rising fears of Islamist attacks, following January 7-9 incidents in Paris that left 17 people dead.
    Anti-terror sweeps carried out across Europe since mid-January have resulted in the arrests of dozens of suspected jihadists and seizures of large stocks of weapons and explosives.
    French ambassador Francois Zimeray, who was at the debate, said the attack had "the same intention as Charlie Hebdo", referring to the killings at the satirical newspaper in Paris last month.
    "Intuitively I would say there were at least 50 gunshots, and the police here are saying 200," he said.
    "Bullets went through the doors and everyone threw themselves to the floor. We managed to flee the room, and now we're staying inside because it's still dangerous. The attackers haven't been caught and they could very well still be in the neighbourhood."
    Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said concern of renewed attacks targeting symbols of freedom of speech and the press have been growing since the Charlie Hebdo assault.
    "It's something that we feared after Charlie Hebdo. We see that ultra-radical groups are leading a war against freedom of expression, against the freedom to be irreverent about religion and against the simple freedom to debate them," Deloire said.
    Speaking at the time of the shooting was Femen feminist activist Inna Shevchenko.
    "I was at the point of my speech when i was saying that often it is an illusion that we have freedom of speech in Europe. Then we heard shots," she told the Telegraph
