Read Time:32 Second

A 40-year-old man has been sentenced to five years in prison for, among other things, aggravated  attempted robbery.

During the attempted robbery, the 40-year-old committed serious violence against a store detective and endangered another person’s life or mobility in front of a supermarket on Amager on January 30 last year.

The store detective tried to detain the 40-year-old man, who brought out a shotgun and shot the detective in the leg. Another shot hit a citizen who was scurrying in the window of his apartment opposite the supermarket.

The verdict was handed down Wednesday in Copenhagen City Court (Københavns Byret).
