On Thursday, Kongsberg church will be open to all the people affected by the killings in Kongsberg.

“The church will be open from 9 o’clock for everyone who needs someone to talk to, be with, light a candle, or just be quiet.”

Parish priest Reidar Aasbø at Kongsberg confirmed the information. The Municipality’s Facebook pages state that the church’s doors are open to anyone who may need comfort, silence, conversation, or company after the horrific events that have taken place on Kongsberg.

“The entire Kongsberg community is affected by this. Now, we’ll stand together and take care of each other,” the Municipality wrote on its website.

Bow and arrow attack

The police received the first report about the incident at 6:13 PM on Wednesday. At 6:47 PM, the man who used a bow and arrow to kill five and injure two people was arrested.

Police stated that there was a confrontation between them and the perpetrator before he was arrested. No police officers were injured in the confrontation. Warning shots were fired in connection with the arrest.

“There are many crime scenes – this person moved over a large area,” Øyvind Aas, operations manager in the Buskerud police, said at a press conference on Wednesday night.
