Another mass shooting, this time in Oslo, Norway, where 2 people were shot dead and 19 injured outside 2 bars in an area of town that is the center of gay nightlife.
It was a horrific scene…you hear the gunshots in the video as 40 witnesses watched and ran in horror. Police captured a suspect just minutes after the attack. A police spokesperson did not identify the suspected shooter or his motive. Cops think there was only one gunman.
A witness told Norwegian media: “I saw a man arrive at the scene with a bag. He took out a gun and started shooting.
Norway celebrates gay pride this month, and on Saturday – literally just hours after the attack – a parade was due to start as the culmination of the 10-day festival.
Norway is considered a progressive country… same-sex couples have had the right to marry since 2009.
Norwegian Prime Minister, Jonas Gahr Storecalled the shooting a “cruel and deeply shocking attack on innocent people”.
This type of violence is rare in Norway, so it is all the more shocking for the people who live there.
Our sincere thanks to
