Norway, man leaves home with bow and arrow and makes a carnage
Massacre in Norway. A 37-year-old man with a bow and arrow left the house and killed at least 5 people. It is a Dane who lives in Kongsberg, near Oslo. The police revealed the nationality after TV reports reported a Norwegian citizen. It was shown on YouTube – we read in Corriere della Sera – a few days before taking action. T-shirt and sweatpants, he wielded a bow and arrow to practice target practice. Then yesterday, after sunset, thanks to the darkness, he started touring the town of Kongsberg, 68 kilometers southwest of Oslo, and shooting his arrows. To kill, this time. Alone, he started from a Coop Extra supermarket.
Then – continues the Corriere – it went on until 18.30, when the Norwegian police received the first call. One arrow and another. The agents immediately went into action. Two helicopters and 10 ambulances, a team of bomb squads were deployed on the field, while the residents were ordered to remain indoors and the policemen, who are normally not armed in Norway, were allowed to equip themselves with guns and rifles. Then, the handcuffs and the transfer of the suspect to the nearby Drammen station. Terrorism is not excluded but not confirmed. “Time will tell us more,” was the dry comment of the Norwegian police.
