Harry Styles cancels Copenhagen show following nearby mall shooting

Harry Styles is “heartbroken” after being forced to cancel a show in Copenhagen due to a deadly shooting at a nearby mall.

“I’m heartbroken along with the people of Copenhagen. I adore this city. The people are so warm and full of love,” Styles, 28, tweeted Sunday evening. “I’m devastated for the victims, their families, and everyone hurting. I’m sorry we couldn’t be together. Please look after each other. H.”

Hours before the “As It Was” singer was set to take the stage at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena for his “Love on Tour” show, a shooting broke out at nearby Fields mall around 6 p.m. local time, Copenhagen police announced via social media Sunday, adding a description of the shooter as a 22-year-old male.

“More than one person is confirmed dead, and several people are injured,” police revealed in another post. “If you are in Copenhagen, contact your relatives and let them know, that you are ok.”

The New York Times later detailed that three people were killed and at least three others were critically injured during the deadly attack.

Cops added that they are seeking out, “witnesses, pictures and videos from the incident” while advising anyone who was at the scene to refrain from sharing footage on social media.

A Danish man has since been taken into custody.

“We are convinced that the man we arrested is the perpetrator,” inspector with the Copenhagen police, Soren Thomassen told The Times. “He had in his possession a rifle, and he had in his possession ammunition for that rifle.”

Styles’ tour is scheduled to proceed with show in Paris Tuesday, July 5, at Accor Arena.
