Though the assailant’s motives remain unclear, the attack unfolded near a LGBT club in Oslo just hours ahead of a major annual Pride march, stoking media speculation they may be related. The shooter has yet to be identified by authorities.
According to journalist Olav Roenneberg, who works for the public broadcaster NRK and was present when the shooting began, the gunman arrived “with a bag” in hand before retrieving a weapon and firing on revelers.
