Copenhagen terrorist was on Danish police radar

The man killed in a shootout with police at a Copenhagen metro was on Danish intelligence service radar before he attacked a café and synagogue and killed two people Saturday night, Jens Madsen of the Danishi Security and Intelligence service (PET) told reporters Sunday. He may have been inspired by ISIS propaganda and the attacks in Paris last month. His identity has not yet been released so as not to compromise the investigation. Police are still carrying out search operations in different parts of Copenhagen, Madsen said.
