Copenhagen: On Tuesday, police killed a man who threatened passersby with a knife on the streets of the Norwegian capital Oslo. Norwegian media published images of the alleged attacker waving a shirtless knife. Police had previously said that people passing by were injured in the attack, but later said that only one police officer was partially injured. Senior Police Chief Egil Jörgen Breck said: “We have no information that the incident is related to terrorism.”

‘We know the background of the attacker’

“For us, this is an occasional occurrence, so there is no reason to fear for the safety of the city above others,” Breck said. This is a person we already know and we know about his background. ” He said that sometime before 9 a.m., the first information police had was of a man chasing another man with a knife, after which a patrol was dispatched to the scene, attempting to arrest the attacker.

‘The attacker died in the hospital’
Police spokesman Torgier Branden said that the officers on a patrol went to a building to arrest the attacker. The attacker attacked the vehicle and opened the car door. He said that several bullets were fired at the attacker. However, it did not clarify whether the police officers in the car opened fire. Brendan said the attacker was taken to a nearby hospital where he died.

‘Oslo safer than the rest’
Last month, a man with an arrow and a knife killed five people in a small town in southwest Oslo. Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gar Storey said he was well aware of why locals experienced Tuesday’s incident so dramatically. “But if you compare it to other big cities in Europe, (you will find) Oslo is a safe city,” he told the Norwegian news committee.
