Together with the citizens of Copenhagen, I’m inconsolable. This is a city I adore. The folks are incredibly friendly and loving. In the wake of the sad events, Styles wrote on Twitter, “I’m saddened for the dead, their homes, and everyone injured. I’m sorry we were unable to be together. Please take care of each other. H”

The suspected shooter, a 22-year-old Danish guy, was detained just 10 – 15 minutes after the incident and is thought to have operated alone, according to the AP. Police inspector Sren Thomassen says it’s too soon to tell on a motive while the investigation into the unfortunate occurrence is still ongoing.

Following the unfortunate events, Mette Frederiksen, the prime minister of Denmark, posted on Facebook to express her condolences.

“An unexpected attack took place in Denmark on Sunday night. A number of people have died. Even more, individuals were hurt, including adults and family members who were out dining or shopping with children, she wrote. My deepest sympathies go out to everyone who lost a loved one. both the injured and their loved ones. And to the Danes who saw the terrifying events. I believe that the Danes should band together and help one another at this difficult time.

If Styles’ tour moves the concert time in Copenhagen, that has not yet been determined. He will perform again on July 5 in Paris.
