The incident occurred shortly before 18. Police are sparse with details of the shot, but says that it will not happen in connection with active service among the public. The person who was involved in the incident continues normally in service.

– We can not comment on details of the event beyond this, because the case is submitted to the Bureau.

But service person is still in operational service, following a thorough evaluation of both the situation and the service person’s aptitude and suitability, says police chief Ingar Bøen and Romsdal Police District.
