Oct 14 (SkyNews) – Several people have been killed and others have been injured in bow and arrow attacks in Norway, according to police.
The incidents took place in the town of Kongsberg, 82km (51 miles) southwest of the capital, Oslo.
A suspect has been apprehended by police, who believe he acted alone.
Police were called to the incident, in the centre of Kongsberg, at 6.30pm on Wednesday evening with additional resources sent from other towns, including Oslo.
Police chief Oyvind Aas told a press conference on Wednesday evening: “I can, unfortunately, confirm that several people have been killed and injured.
“A man was apprehended at 6.47pm. From the information we have at the moment, one person committed this act alone. He hasn’t been questioned yet so it’s too early to say what the motive was.
”There is major police activity in the area because there are many crime scenes.”
He declined to comment on the number of casualties and said he could not comment on whether the man was known to the police.
Asked if he could confirm that a police officer had been shot in the back, he replied: “I can’t answer that question”.
