A 20-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after shooting another man in Oslo in February. The defendant denies criminal guilt.

On February 13 this year, the police were notified that shots had been fired at Bjølsen in Oslo. A man was seriously injured in the incident. A 20-year-old man was arrested and is now charged with attempted murder, the newspaper Avisa Oslo writes.
