A Danish man who shot two police during a drug raid in Copenhagen earlier this week was an ISIS group member, the militant-linked Amaq news outlet said on Friday.

“The perpetrator of the attack that targeted the police in Copenhagen is a soldier of the ISIS and carried out the operation in response to calls to target the countries of the coalition,” it said, referring to an international alliance battling ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
