The suspect was arrested minutes after the shooting.

The attack took place ahead of a pride parade in Oslo, 50 years after the state legally granted LGBTI + rights to people.

Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said this was a horrific and, as he put it, deeply shocking attack on innocent people and supported LGBTI + people.

A large number of emergency services are at the crime scene and hospitals in Oslo are on high alert.
