Shooting at Oslo mosque, 1 shot & 1 arrested – Norway police

One person injured in shooting inside mosque in Norwegian capital Oslo

One person was injured in a mosque shooting in an Oslo suburb and the suspect has been arrested, police say.

The shooting oocurred at the al-Noor Islamic centre in the town of Baerum, an Oslo suburb.

When they saw the perpetrator, the two other men fled to safety while the 75-year-old man "was quick and grabbed him immediately", Mr Mushtaq said.

An older man sustained light injuries, police told a news conference, but said it was too early to say if the wounds were caused by the gunshots or sustained during the attempt to restrain the gunman.

The head of the mosque described the assailant, who was later arrested by police, as white and said he was wearing a helmet and a uniform.

He was overpowered by members of the mosque before police arrived, the mosque director said.

According to Mushtaq, the mosque had not received any threats ahead of the shooting.
