The twenty-one year old, Philip Manshaus , suspected of opening fire in a Norwegian mosque, appeared in court “with two black eyes and wounds to his face and neck.” He was charged with murder and terrorism.
Prosecutors have requested that authorities hold Manshaus for four weeks in complete isolation, as well as ban him from receiving mail, visitors, and media requests.
Oslo District Police Attorney Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby told CNN, “The prosecution will request closed doors to the prison meeting for the sake of danger of forfeiture, as the investigation is at an early stage and the accused has not provided an explanation to the police,” the statement said.
At this point, no one can say exactly how Manshaus received his black eyes and wounds; but, board member Imran Mushtaq said that at the time the alleged gunman man opened fire, a 65 year old over powered him.
Besides opening fire at a mosque, authorities also found his seventeen year-old step sister’s body in his home.
“Superintendent Rune Skjold told reporters Sunday that the suspect had expressed right-wing sympathies online. He had praised figures like Vidkun Quisling, the leader of Norway under Nazi occupation during World War II.”
