High-profile Hells Angels member Brian Sandberg was sitting at the window of Joe & the Juice coffee shop two suspects approached and opened fire

19:17 |

Stein Bagger’s former bodyguard, prominent Hells Angels member Brian Sandberg, narrowly escaped with his life yesterday when he was shot at close range Danish television and radio personality Mads Vangsø put it best when he asked the government if residents of Copenhagen now need to buy bulletproof vests for their children, in a full page advertisement in national tabloid Ekstra Bladet.
His call for the government to take action came after the midday shooting that took place on an exclusive central Copenhagen shopping street yesterday.High-profile Hells Angels member Brian Sandberg was sitting at the window of Joe & the Juice coffee shop on Ny Østergade street when two suspects approached and opened fire at 1pm.CCTV footage and eye witness accounts describe one of the men drawing a pistol and shooting at Sandberg’s back twice from less than two metres away. The two men fled on foot from the scene.It was initially feared that Sandberg was seriously injured, but it appears that the 9mm thick café window absorbed most of the bullet’s power. Ekstra Bladet reports that the first bullet penetrated the window and Sandberg’s heavy padded jacket, before leaving burn marks on his back. The second bullet also broke through the glass, but embedded itself in the café’s sofa, which had its back facing the street.Sandberg was taken to hospital before receiving a police escort to the City police station at Halmtorvet square. He emerged after an hour of questioning to flashbulbs and jostling reporters. Sandberg did not answer any questions regarding the attempt on his life, only confirming that he felt fine, before being whisked away from the station by two AK 81 members in a waiting car.
AK 81 is a young supporters group of the Hells Angels and its members have been linked to many of the shootings between the bikers and immigrant gangs.It is the second street shooting is less than three days after an Algerian man was hit by gunfire as he sat in a central café on Monday night. The 40-year-old was in a Thai restaurant in the popular café area of Halmtorvet, when a masked man emerged from a car and sprayed the restaurant window with bullets. The victim was hit by four bullets as he dived for cover, but is expected to recover from his injuries.Hells Angels spokesman Jørn Jønke Nielsen told B.T. newspaper that he did not see this as an escalation of the difficulties between the bikers and the gangs.‘There’s no conflict, so there’s no need to talk of retaliation,’ said Nielsen.Sandberg has been the subject of much attention over the last year, not solely due to his Hells Angels connections. His security company BS Consultancy was hired by Stein Bagger’s IT Factory and Sandberg had effectively acted as Bagger’s personal bodyguard, until the executive fled to the US, leaving IT Factory bankrupt.Berlingske Tidende newspaper reports that the bodyguard had been paid 200,000 kroner per month by Bagger to keep him safe. The attempt on his life came only an hour after he had been questioned by prosecutors in connection with Bagger’s ongoing fraud case.
