Two people are dead and more than a dozen injured in a mass shooting at a nightclub in Oslo in the early hours of Saturday morning, Norwegian police said.
The shooting took place outside the London Pub, a popular gay bar and nightclub, in the center of the Norwegian capital, Reuters reported.
According to local media, police apprehended the suspect within four minutes of receiving calls about the shooting.
Local journalist Olav Roenneberg from Norway’s public broadcaster said he witnessed the shooting.
“I saw a man arrive at the site with a bag. He picked up a weapon and started shooting,” Roenneberg told NRK. “First I thought it was an air gun. Then the glass of the bar next door was shattered and I understood I had to run for cover.”
A police spokesperson said local civilians provided life-saving first aid to some of the injured and helped law enforcement apprehend the shooter, according to local media Aftenposten.
Tore Barstad, a spokesperson for Oslo police, said the civilians made a heroic effort to get control of the shooter and that police were grateful to the people who helped the injured.
Oslo police confirmed via Twitter that two died in the shooting and that several were “seriously injured.”

Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre said in a statement that the attack was shocking and cruel, state media NRK reported.
NRK claimed the shooter was known to the police and has not yet been interviewed after his arrest on Saturday. The outlet reported that police technicians have conducted a search of the man’s home.
Police said that while the suspect’s motive was unclear, authorities would assess whether police should introduce measures to protect a pride parade planned for Saturday in Oslo.
“Police are in contact with the organizers of the pride event this Saturday,” Barstad told reporters.
“There will be a continuous assessment of what measures police should take to protect that event and whether this incident has a connection to pride at all.”
