Police tape, sniffer dogs and crime scene technicians have become an all too familiar sight in the Funen city of Odense recently, as the escalating gang conflict saw seven innocent people targeted in the last two weeks.

The conflict between Hells Angels support group AK81 and criminal immigrant gangs has spilled over into daylight stabbings and shootings against innocent people, reports Fyens Stiftstidende newspaper.

The latest episode saw two men boxed in by two cars, before seven or eight shots were fired at their vehicle on Sunday afternoon. The men escaped unharmed and a man was later arrested in connection with the incident.

Police are reporting that the gangs have stepped up their efforts against each other and civilians are getting caught in the middle.

‘We have several reports of completely ordinary people being stopped and body searched on the streets of Odense by some of these people because the thought they were connected to the conflict,’ said Torben Schultz-Pedersen of Funen Police.

The national mobile police unit has now dispatched five or six officers to help local district police stop the crime spree.
