COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Danish police say that they have arrested two men suspected of helping the gunman who carried out the two shooting attacks over the weekend in Copenhagen.

Police in Copenhagen say the arrests were made Sunday and that the two men will face a custody hearing on Monday.

The suspect was killed in a gun battle with a SWAT team early Sunday.

He had opened fire Saturday at a cultural center hosting a seminar on free speech with an artist who had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad and then later at security forces outside a synagogue, police said.
