Several killed in Norway bow and arrow attack

At least five people were killed in the Norwegian town of Kongsberg by a man armed with a bow and arrow, according to local media.

The shootings are believed to have taken place in a supermarket in the town, 80 kilometers southwest of Oslo.

Police chief Øyvind Aas said the man had been apprehended and “from the information we now have, this person carried out these actions alone,” Reuters reported. According to police, the man was a Danish citizen in his 30s who lived in Kongsberg.

The motive for the attacks was not clear, Aas said, but he did not rule out terrorism. “It is natural to consider whether it is an act of terrorism. But the man has not been questioned and it is too early to come to any conclusion.”
