A man armed with a bow and arrow killed several people and injured others in southeastern Norway on Wednesday, police said, adding they had arrested the suspect.
“Unfortunately we can confirm that many have been injured in this episode and unfortunately many have died,” local police officer Ovind Aas told a news conference.
“The person who committed this act has been arrested by the police and to the best of our knowledge, only one person is involved.”
The motive behind the attacks in several places in Kongsberg’s town center is yet to be ascertained.
Police said the suspect was taken to a police station in the nearby town of Dramon, but did not provide any other details about the man.
“There is no active search for other people,” Aas said.
The injured have been taken to the hospital. However, the number or condition of the injured is not yet known.
