At least two people were injured during a shooting at a mosque in the Norwegian capital of Oslo on Saturday, according to reports.
The shooting occured in Al-Noor Islamic Center in Bearum municipality in Norway.
One person was arrested shortly after the incident, reported public broadcaster NRK.
Taking to Twitter, Norwegian police said, “Nothing indicates that there have been more people involved. A person who was at the scene is slightly injured”.
“A person dressed in uniform with two shotgun-like guns entered the mosque. He started shooting around, but fortunately one of our members managed to overpower the shooter,” Irfan Mushtaq, board member of the Al-Noor Islamic Centre told newspaper Aftenposten.
“The gunman, who wore body armour, was overpowered by people at the mosque before police arrived at the scene”, Mushtaq added.
Five or seven people were present during the prayer when the shooting took place, Aftenposten reported.
The mosque had previously implemented extra security measures after a gunman killed 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, earlier this year.
