A man armed with a bow and arrows killed 5 people and injured several others on Wednesday in Kongsberg, in south-eastern Norway, before being arrested by police.
The incident occurred shortly before 6.30 p.m. (4.30 p.m. GMT) in an area described as fairly large Kongsberg. The suspect was arrested at 6:47 p.m., police said.
“Seen the course of events, it is natural to assess whether it is an attack terrorist”, said a local police official, Øyvind Aas, during a press briefing, before continuing: “He is too early to comment on its mobiles “.
Prime Minister Erna Solberg “These events us shake “, she said while at the same time the police asked the inhabitants to Kongsberg to stay at home.
