Suspect taken into custody for shooting at an Islamic Centre-Oslo, Norway

A suspect described as a “young white man” was taken into custody for shooting and injuring a 75-year-old man inside of the al-Noor Islamic Centre near Oslo, Norway.

Mosque director Irfan Mushtaq told TV2:

“The man carried two shotgun-like weapons and a pistol. He broke through a glass door and fired shots,” he said.

“The shooter, who wore body armour and a helmet, was overpowered by members of the mosque before police arrived,” Mushtaq added.

After more than 50 people died at two New Zealand mosques by a suspected right-wing extremist, the Islamic Centre employed more security.
