Six men in their 20s must meet in Oslo District Court on Tuesday, accused of trying to murder a now 23-year-old man in the fall of 2017.
The man was shot in the back of Holmlia in Oslo in October 2017. The background to the murder attempt was an alleged gang conflict.
Police believe all six are affiliated with the criminal gang Young Bloods. It was also the 23-year-old who was shot, VG wrote earlier this year.
The 23-year-old is currently paralyzed from the chest down as a result of the shot to the back of the head. According to Assistant Attorney Carl Rieber-Mohn, he is dependent on 24-hour assistance.
Police found the then 21-year-old man lying on the street the pet trail in Holmlia just after midnight on Saturday, October 7, 2017. By then, witnesses in the area had alerted police about the shooting and several people running away from the area.
“He is pleased that six of the seven defendants in the case ended up on the prosecution bench. He has a hope that the one who pulled the trigger will be revealed. The investigation so far has not pointed out who that was,” Rieber-Mohn tells VG.
The Oslo District Court has set aside a month to handle this case.
