UPDATE 2:00 PM: Denmark's security service (PET) declared the shooting an apparent terror attack, according to FoxNews.com.

The agency said in a statement the circumstances surrounding the shooting "indicate that we are talking about a terror attack."

The TV2 channel said in a report that police found the the getaway car nearby. The car had been abandoned and there was no sign of the suspect.

At least one person is dead and three are injured following a shooting at a Copenhagen, Denmark, free speech event.

According to FoxNews.com, dozens of shots were fired at the Krudttoenden cafe, which was hosting controversial Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced threats for his depictions of the Prophet Muhammad.

The victim was a 40-year-old man. The shooting also injured three police officers. Vilks was not hurt, according to reports.

Danish police say the gunman escaped in a dark Volkswagen Polo and is still on the loose.

FoxNews.com reported:

Vilks, 68, has faced several attempted attacks and death threats after he depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a dog in 2007.

A Pennsylvania woman last year got a 10-year prison term for a plot to kill Vilks. In 2010, two brothers tried to burn down his house in southern Sweden and were imprisoned for attempted arson.

After Islamic militants attacked the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris last month, killing 12 people, Vilks told the AP that even fewer organizations were inviting him to give lectures over increased security concerns.

Vilks also said he thought Sweden's SAPO security service, which deploys bodyguards to protect him, would step up the security around him.

"This will create fear among people on a whole different level than we're used to," he said. "Charlie Hebdo was a small oasis. Not many dared do what they did."
