2 dead, 14 injured in mass shooting at gay club in Norway

A shooting at a gay nightclub in Oslo killed two people and injured 14 Saturday, hours before the Norwegian capital was set to host its annual Pride parade.

A suspect believed to be the lone shooter was placed under arrest shortly following the shooting massacre, which was centered around The London Pub and spread to a neighboring establishment and nearby street.

“I saw a man arrive with a bag, he picked up a gun and started to shoot,” journalist Olav Roenneberg of public broadcaster NRK reported.

Police spokesman Tore Barstad said the motive was not immediately known and that it wasn’t clear whether the shooting had any connection to the Pride parade that was to be held Saturday.

“Police are in contact with the organizers of the Pride event this Saturday. There will be a continuous assessment of what measures police should take to protect that event and whether this incident has a connection to Pride at all,” Barstad told reporters.

Norway police said it was not immediately known if the shooting at the club was connected to the Pride parade which was set to be held hours later on Saturday.

Several of the wounded victims were being treated for severe injuries, officials said.

The London Pub is a popular gay nightclub and bar in central Oslo.
