|40 more nails in the coffin of Free Speech in Europe|
The French ambassador was also present at the debate.
Reports say up to 40 shots were fired during the attack and a manhunt has been launched.
Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks has faced death threats after drawing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. He was not harmed during the Copenhagen attack.
Shortly after the shooting, a message appeared on the Twitter feed of French ambassador Francois Zimeray saying he was still alive.

Police have erected cordons and are searching a nearby park, he adds.
There were reports that police were hunting two gunmen, but this is unconfirmed.

an event titled "Art, blasphemy and the freedom of expression" was being held
in Copenhagen, Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015
An organiser of the event, Helle Merete Brix, said she clearly considered the incident as an attack on Mr Vilks, reported the Associated Press news agency.
In 2010 two brothers tried to burn down the cartoonist's house in southern Sweden and were imprisoned for attempted arson.
Today's shooting (not coincidentally at a free speech debate), death threats against Mr Vilks, attempted arson of his home, the burning of the Hamburger Morgenpost in Hamburg, Germany last month are assaults on free speech. Such assaults will only increase unless Europeans abandon free speech in regard to the False Prophet. Truth and freedom of thought and expression have no place in Islam!
Unless action is taken now, the day will come when we will all be saying, "Je suis Islam"! Are you ready for that?
