The Associated Press

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) Danish police say they have arrested a fifth man suspected of assisting a gunman who killed two people in attacks in Copenhagen last month.

Police said Friday in a statement that the "young man," whom they declined to identify, would face a custody hearing later in the day together with another unidentified man arrested the day before.

On Feb. 14, El-Hussein killed a bystander outside a free-speech seminar before spraying the entrance with 27 bullets. Hours later, the 22-year-old El-Hussein fatally shot a Jewish guard outside Copenhagen's main synagogue. Five officers were also wounded in the attacks. El-Hussein was later killed in a police shootout.

Three other men are already in custody suspected of assisting El-Hussein.
