Dozens of bouquets of flowers were left Monday at the site in Copenhagen where the suspected gunman behind two fatal shootings at the weekend was killed by police.

An Agence France-Presse reporter saw several people laying flowers outside the building in the inner-city neighborhood of Noerrebro where Omar El-Hussein was shot dead.

An elderly woman, who brought flowers but did not wish to be identified, said "the boy didn't know what he was doing."

Nicolaus Lambert, who also laid a bouquet at the site, told AFP he wanted to show "forgiveness."

The scene attracted a small group of onlookers but many more passed by with only a quick glance at the mounting pile of blossoms.

"What (the gunman) did was wrong," said one of the onlookers, Mohammed, who didn't give his last name.

Copenhagen was in a state of shock after the attacks at a cultural center and a synagogue, in which two people were killed.

Both the cultural center and synagogue were swamped in flowers laid in honor of the victims.
