The shooting incident in Oslo came as the city was preparing for an annual rally in support of homosexuality.

Attempt to create fear among homosexuals

Police Attorney Christian Hutlow said the suspect was arrested on suspicion of murder, attempt to murder and terrorism in connection with multiple shootings. The mental health of the accused is also being examined. “Our overall assessment is that there is sufficient evidence and grounds to believe that he intended to instill serious fear among people,” Hatlow said. The shooting took place around 1 a.m. local time, with panicked people running through the streets and trying to hide from the gunman.

Eyewitness journalist told the condition of the spot

Olav Röneberg, a journalist for Norway’s state-run broadcaster NRK, said he had seen the shootings with his own eyes. Ronenberg said, “I saw a man come there with a bag. He took out the weapon from the bag and started firing. At first I thought it was an air gun. Then the glass of the bar next to it broke and I understood that I would have to run to hide.”

2 killed, 10 injured in the incident

Police Inspector Torey Soldal said two people were killed in the shootout and 10 seriously injured were undergoing treatment. It was not immediately clear whether the shooting was related to a pro-gay rally in Oslo on Saturday.

Norway’s PM expressed deep grief through Facebook

Norway’s Prime Minister Jonas Gehr Store said in a Facebook post, “The shocking incident of the shooting outside a London pub in Oslo tonight was a brutal attack on innocent people.” But it did create fear and grief among the gay community. We are all with him in this difficult time.

We saw several injured people as we went out, so we knew something serious had happened.” Video footage aired on Norway’s local news channel TV-2 showed panicked people running through the streets of Oslo.
