A suspect has been arrested and the situation is under control, a press officer for Norway’s police force told CNN on Wednesday.
A local Kongsberg police spokesman also said the suspected attacker was using a bow and arrow.
The spokesman said police were first informed about the suspect at 6.15 pm local time. He said the suspect attacked people at several places before being arrested.
Asked whether the situation was being treated as terrorism, Norway’s police press officer said it was “not yet clear, it is too early to tell.”
Kongsberg is located 85 kilometers west of the capital Oslo.
