The gunman rang the doorbell of 70-year-old Lars Hedegaard’s apartment in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, under the pretext of delivering a parcel, but when the writer opened his front door the hitman pulled out a weapon and fired a shot that just missed Mr Hedegaard’s head.

According to Mr Hedegaard, who described how the bullet ‘flew past’ his right ear, said the sniper fled after the writer punched him in the face causing him to drop his gun.

    Typical cowardly Muzz – armed with a gun but runs off when a seventy-year-old man punches him in the face. They don’t like it when you fight back!

  2. Richard says:

    He probably rehearsed it then when it didn’t go like rehearsal he panicked, typical reaction of a non professional, my question was answered, the wasn’t part of a terror group.

    Sigh, if only OUR gun laws were as sensible as Europes…
