COPENHAGEN, Feb 15 (Reuters) - The gunman believed to have attacked a Copenhagen synagogue and a free speech event on Saturday was a Danish-born 22-year-old known to police because of past violence, gang-related activities and possession of weapons, police said in a statement on Sunday.

Police said they had identified the man, who was killed in an early-morning shootout on Sunday, but did not release his name. (Reporting by Teis Jensen; Writing by Balazs Koranyi; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
