A man with multiple weapons fired at a mosque on the outskirts of Norway’s capital yesterday, injuring a congregation, before being arrested.

The head of the mosque described the attacker as a white man, wearing a helmet and a uniform.

“A victim was shot. The extent of his injuries is unknown. A suspect has been arrested. Police are on duty at the scene, ”Oslo police said on Twitter.

The shooting took place at the al-Noor Islamic center in Baerum, on the outskirts of Oslo. Police said no more than one person was involved.

They said there was no information about the suspect other than that he was a white man.

“One of our congregation was shot by a white man wearing a helmet and a uniform. He was of Norwegian descent with a rifle and several pistols.

“The suspect entered the mosque and smashed a mirror and started firing,” said the head of the mosque, Irfan Mushtaq.

The NHK government broadcaster reported that police found several weapons in the mosque and that someone inside the building was able to arrest the suspect, before police arrived.
