Five people have been killed and two more injured in Norway after a man used a bow and arrow to attack them.

Police first received word of an attack in the town of Kongsberg, south-west of the capital Oslo, at around 18:13 local time (16:13 GMT).

Chief Oeyvind Aas said a suspect had been caught and seemed to have acted alone.

Police will investigate whether it was an act of terror.

The attacker is said to have launched the assault inside a Coop Extra supermarket on Kongsberg's west side. One of those injured was an off-duty police officer who was in the shop at the time.

A spokesperson for the chain later confirmed there was a "serious incident" at their store, adding that none of their staff were physically injured.

"The country's police directorate has ordered all officers nationwide to carry firearms as an extra precaution. Usually police in the country are not armed."

Hmm that makes it sound like there is more to it than at face value

What does that have to do with the thread?

I’m just thinking about how much more tragic it could be in the U.S. where we have virtually no gun control. There’s an inevitable debate that will come up where someone will say “look guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”
