Mass Shooting in Norway's Gay District, 2 Dead, at Least 19 Injured
Another mass shooting, this time in Oslo, Norway, where 2 people were shot to death and 19 were injured outside of 2 bars in an area of the city that is the hub of gay nightlife.
It was a horrendous scene … you hear the gunshots in the video as 40 witnesses looked and ran in horror. Police captured a suspect just minutes after the attack. A police spokesman would not identify the alleged shooter or motive. Cops believe there was only one gunman.
One Witness told a Norwegian media outlet, “I saw a man arrive at the scene with a bag. He took up a gun and started shooting.”
Norway is celebrating gay pride this month, and Saturday — literally just hours after the attack — a parade was supposed to start as the highlight of the 10-day festival.
Norway is considered a progressive country … gay couples have had the right to marry since 2009.
Norway’s Prime Minister, Jonas Gahr Store, called the shooting a “cruel and deeply shocking attack on innocent people.”
This type of violence is rare in Norway, so it’s all the more shocking to folks who live there.
