A man made his way through the Norwegian town of Kongsberg Tuesday shooting a bow and arrow on a spree that left five people dead and two others wounded in the deadliest act of its kind in at least the last century, Reuters reports.
“The man used a bow and arrow … for some of the attacks,” police chief Oeyvind Aas told reporters. The police were investigating whether other weapons had also been used, he said. “The man has been apprehended … from the information we now have, this person carried out these actions alone.”
Police say the killings took place in various areas in the city of Kongsberg, which has a population of 28,000. Photos by a local newspaper show arrows stuck in the wood exterior of a building, implying the shooter fired many more arrows than just the ones that struck victims.
