UPDATE: This Copenhagen Post story originally said this (thanks to George Igler):
The two assailants “of Arab appearance”, according to reports, fled into Copenhagen Zoo which has been cordoned off by police.
Now it says this:
After first sealing off Hedegaard’s street, police have now also cordoned off Copenhagen Zoo after two men wearing ski masks were seen jumping over the wall to the zoo into the hippopotamus enclosure.
Berlingske newspaper reports that witnesses reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot at around 13:50.
Police say the man that fired the shot was wearing a red coat, is around 30 years of age and has dark skin and thick, dark hair.
Where is the complicit media? Where is the international outcry? Muslims tried to murder a man for speaking out against sharia and jihad, and the complicit enemedia has nothing to say.
Lars Hedegaard, a colleague and respected author who spoke at the September 11, 2012 SION Freedom Congress at UN Plaza, has been shot at at his Copenhagen home. It could have been a leftist, it could have been a Muslim, but it is certain that it was an enemy of free speech. Will this finally wake up Danish authorities, who subjected him to a sharia blasphemy trial in 2011 (more on that case here) to just how seriously the enemies of free speech are threatening the foundations of free society?
Probably not. They will say Hedegaard provoked them to violence. The enemedia and governing authorities seem determined to capitulate to sharia, and so we will see many more incidents like this one. They couldn't silence Lars with their heresy trial, so now they tried to silence him in another way.
More on this story as it develops.
Report: Gunman fires at anti-Islam writer, misses AP February 5
COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Danish media are reporting that an unknown gunman has tried to shoot a Danish writer and historian who is a prominent critic of Islam.
TV2 News and the Politiken news site say Lars Hedegaard was not injured in the shooting.
Both say the gunman came up to Hedegaard's Copenhagen home Tuesday on the pretext of delivering a package, and then fired at least one shot but missed the writer.
Copenhagen police confirmed that there had been a shooting without injuries. They wouldn't say whether Hedegaard was the intended target.
Hedegaard heads the International Free Press Society, a group that claims press freedom is under threat from Islam.He was fined 5,000 kroner ($1,000) in 2011 for making a series of insulting and degrading statements about Muslims.
