On Thursday, the police confirmed that the accused of the murders in Kongsberg also used other weapons – in addition to the bow and arrow.

Police lawyer Ann Irén Svane Mathiassen did not want to provide more details about the weapons for the sake of the investigation.

The accused man was arrested in Kongsberg on Wednesday night. On the night before Thursday, the police announced that the arrested man was a 37-year-old Danish citizen who lives in Kongsberg.

“The police can confirm this information about the accused because many rumors are circulating on social media about possible perpetrators,” the police wrote in a press release.

“Cooperating with the police”

The man was transported to the police station in Drammen. He has had lawyer Fredrik Neumann appointed as defense counsel.

“I have talked to my client, and he has been questioned,” the lawyer told the newspaper VG.

“He is cooperating with the police,” the lawyer noted. He told the Danish news agency Ritzau that the accused would be produced for custody on Thursday.

Five people were killed and two people were injured in the Wednesday attack in Kongsberg.
