Local media published footage showing heavily armed police at the scene, as well as people running out of the mall.

The capital’s main hospital, Rigshospitalet, received at least three patients, a spokesperson told CNN . Emergency personnel were called in, including surgeons and nurses, the spokesperson added.

British singer Harry Styles is due to perform at the end of the night, at 20:00 (15:00 GMT), at a concert hall less than a mile from the mall.

The show will take place as scheduled after a close dialogue with police, and half the audience has already entered the venue, the show’s promoter Live Nation exposed in a commentary sent to Reuters.
