Man with bow and arrow kills five in Norway: police
A man armed with a bow and arrow killed five people and injured two others in a series of attacks in the Norwegian city of Kongsberg on Wednesday.
This is what the local police chief Oeyvind Aas says.
“Unfortunately, I can confirm that five people were killed and two injured. One of the injured is a police officer who was off duty in the shop where the incident occurred. He is now in the hospital like the other injured man. "."
Aas said a male suspect had been arrested and it was too early to know the intentions behind the attack.
Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said police are investigating whether it was an act of terrorism.
“I want to emphasize that when it comes to terror, we do not know if it is a political attack. The police have to investigate. "
After the attacks, the police department announced that they had instructed officials across the country to carry firearms as a precaution.
It added that the national threat level has not changed so far.
The Norwegian police are usually unarmed, but officers have access to weapons and rifles if necessary.
Wednesday's attack was the worst in Norway since 2011, when a right-wing extremist killed 77 people, mostly teenagers, in a youth camp.
