The police have found a weapon that they believe can be linked to the shooting at Skøyenåsen in Oslo on Sunday, the newspaper Avisa Oslo reports. The police are asking the public for tips in the case.
Operations Manager Tor Gulbrandsen in the Oslo Police District told the newspaper that he can not comment on where the weapon was found.
“We have found a weapon. The weapon will now be examined,” he said.
Gulbrandsen further said that the police already know the man in his 30s who has been arrested in connection with the shooting.
Just after 8 PM on Sunday, two people were shot in a subway car on Skøyenåsen, east of Oslo. The suspected perpetrator ran from the scene.
The two injured, two young men between the ages of 18 and 20, have a foreign ethnic background. The apprehended person is a white man in his 30s, according to Avisa Oslo.
The police have previously told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that they are, among other things, investigating whether the shooting was racistly motivated.
The two injured men are hospitalized with serious injuries, but their condition is described as stable. There is no known relationship between the victims and the suspected perpetrator, according to police.
The police are asking for tips in the case.
“If the public has information or tips in connection with the shooting at Skøyenåsen last night, it is requested that they call us at 02800 or write to us at police.no,” the Oslo Police District wrote.
