Raging thugs ran past shooting victim / 60 – 70 youngsters began smashing the first-aid ward when they couldn’t find the shooting victim
Police took no chances in front of Odense court today, where three individuals were presented for constitutional interrogation [‘fremstillet i grundlovsforhør’; danish legal term] for attempted manslaughter and riot at the OUH [Odense Universitetshospital above]
See the men’s route through the first-aid ward on the map of Akut- og Traumecentret above. They split in two groups, then went straight and to the left (the red arrows). The shooting victim lay in room 1 (the [marked] number 1 to the left on the map).
Frightened nurses and patients became the closest witnesses of the raging mob of 60 – 70 young men, who stormed the first-aid ward at Odense Universitetshospital, monday night during a revenge-filled hunt for the 26-year old shooting victim who had been shot on the square in Vollsmose [Odense mohammedan ghetto], shortly before.
They shouted at the nurses that it wasn’t them they were out after, and when they didn’t find their victim, they started to rip pictures from the wall, smash vases and destroy the inventory with clubs in a real raging inferno, while hospital staff fled.
But what they didn’t know was that they just had run past their shooting victim, who continued to lie in room 1 of the first-aid section.
‘The person in question was in his room. He was waiting to be transported to the main buidling, but then came these young people raising hell, so he was held back at his room until it was all over. Then, he was moved’, explains hopspital director Jane Kraglund to ekstrabladet.dk.
The vandalising youngsters were in the ward for about ten minutes, where they spread fear and destruction, until they disappeared as suddenly as they had arrived.
There is evidence that the whole matter is about internal disagreements among two groups of arab origin. Police have not disclosed yet what they think is the motive for the shooting episode and the unusual raging at the first-aid ward.
But during the constitutional interrogation this morning of a 26-year old man, who is charged for attempted manslaughter of the shooting victim, became evident that there were shouts before the shots, ‘It’s him who stabbed your uncle. Shoot him. Stake him’, when he saw the [later] victim at the crime scene.
