A Danish man who shot two police officers during a drug raid in Copenhagen earlier this week was an ISIS member, the extremist-linked Amaq news outlet said Friday.The 25-year-old, named by local media as Mesa Hodzic, shot two police officers and a civilian on Wednesday during a routine drug raid, and died Friday of gunshot wounds he sustained during his eventual arrest.Danish police said Thursday that Hodzic had links to the radical extremist group Millatu Ibrahim and that he sympathized with ISIS, but that there was no evidence that extremism had inspired the shooting.Copenhagen police on Friday had no immediate comment on Amaq's claims.
