A man with a bow and arrow in Norway on Wednesday killed several people and wounded others.
An unidentified man, armed with a Robin Hood-style weapon, allegedly walked around the wreckage in the small town of Kongsberg on Wednesday night, said local police chief Oyvind Aas.
“This man has been arrested … according to the information we have, this man carried out these actions alone,” Aas said, according to the UK’s Guardian. “Several people were injured and several were killed.”
He declined to say how many victims there were, but said there were “several crime scenes” that arose when the attacker moved around the city and fired at people.
Much of the city, 50 miles from the country’s capital, Oslo, was evacuated after armed police and helicopters arrived at the scene Wednesday night.
The injured victims were hospitalized, and on Wednesday the city’s crisis group left others in mourning.
“We are assisting national sources of assistance, such as police helicopters, bomb squads and Emergency Response Force crews,” said Oslo Police spokeswoman Unni Grondal.
Other details, including the cause, were not disclosed on Wednesday.
