Kongsberg – Several people were injured and killed in a blood attack in Norway. The Norwegian police announced this at a press conference on Wednesday evening. The act took place around 6:30 p.m. in the center of the city of Kongsberg, which is located around 80 kilometers southwest of Oslo.
The police could unfortunately confirm that there were several injuries and deaths, said the responsible police chief Øyvind Aas. He couldn’t say exactly how many victims there were. The injured were taken to hospitals.

Aas went on to say that it is apparently a retailer and that no further perpetrators are being sought. The man was allegedly armed with a bow and arrow and was arrested.
The crime in Kongsberg brings back memories of the worst attack in Norwegian history. Ten years ago Anders Behring Breivik first detonated a bomb in Oslo’s government district, killing eight people.
He then drove to the island of Utøya, about 30 kilometers away, and killed 69 other people.
