In the last two weeks, there have been three shooting episodes in Oslo. “We take this very seriously,” Grete Lien Metlid in the Oslo police stated.

On Tuesday morning, Metlid, the head of Intelligence and Investigation (FEE) in the Oslo Police District, held a press release in connection with the shootings.

“We take this very seriously. It is very serious that the shooting took place in the public space,” Metlid said, adding that the police understand that this creates unrest among the population.

The last shooting incident happened on Monday, August 30, when a man in his 20s was shot and injured at Brynseng Metro station in Oslo.

Multiple shooting incidents

On Wednesday, August 25, two men were shot at an entrance to Trosterud in Oslo. Both ended up in the hospital. No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting.

On Sunday, August 15, two young boys were shot in a subway car at Skøyenåsen subway station. One of them was seriously injured. The perpetrator has been arrested.

“We see no connection between these cases,” Metlid said.

“It is also not the case that all these cases are related to criminal circles or gangs.”

She noted that the cases have a high priority for the police and that investigations are in full swing.
