An alleged drug dealer who shot two police officers and a bystander in Copenhagen's semiautonomous Christiania neighborhood earlier this week was a member of Daesh (ISIS), the jihadi-linked Amaq news outlet said Friday. The 25-year-old gunman escaped after the attack but was arrested after a shootout with police. As residents of the neighborhood tore down the area's hashish market Friday, authorities and the gunman's defense lawyer said he had died from his wounds.Danish lawmakers, who for years have called for the open hashish sale to stop, rushed to applaud the residents' action.Manghezi said Hodzic was not a Christiania resident.Since Pusher Street was created in the late 1980s, police have raided the hashish sale dozens of time and have torn down stalls several times with little luck.
