English singer and songwriter Harry Styles has canceled his concert in Copenhagen due to a shooting in a shopping mall near the venue the day of his performance.
On Sunday, the singer canceled his concert in light of a tragic incident that claimed the lives of three people and injured several others, according to AlJazeera. A gunman began shooting at multiple locations inside Field’s, one of Scandinavia’s largest shopping malls, located in the Danish capital.
“I am heartbroken with the people of Copenhagen. I love this city. The people are so warm and full of love. I am devastated for the victims, their families and everyone who is suffering. I am sorry that we we couldn’t be together. Please take care of each other. H,” the “As It Was” singer tweeted on Monday, expressing his solidarity with the people of Copenhagen.
A 22-year-old Dane has been arrested for Sunday’s shooting and charged with manslaughter. Shortly after, Danish police released an update saying the suspect had mental health issues. “Our suspect is also known to psychiatric services, beyond that I don’t wish to comment,” Copenhagen Police Chief Soren Thomassen told a news conference on Monday.
The suspect apparently acted alone, although Thomassen added that it was too early to say if there was any involvement from other people.
“Denmark was hit by a cruel attack on Sunday evening. Several were killed. Even more hurt. Innocent families shop or eat out. Children, adolescents and adults,” Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said on Sunday.
“Our beautiful and usually so safe capital was changed in a split second,” she said. “I want to encourage Danes to stick together and support each other in this difficult time.”
Fans told the “Watermelon Sugar” singer that he did the right thing and prayed for his safety.
It’s still unclear if Styles’ Love On Tour will reschedule the concert date in Copenhagen. He will then perform in Paris on July 5.
