Police in Oslo are investigating clues as to the possible whereabouts of a person who they believe killed a man on Monday night.
They were called to the Shell petrol station in Ensjø at about 10:15pm following reports of one person having been shot.
The victim, who has not been named yet, was evaluated as having been seriously wounded when officers arrived on the scene approximately four minutes later.
He was driven directly to the nearest hospital, but died shortly afterwards.
At today’s press conference, Oslo police said they know the 30-year-old deceased person from the capital already.
The man who allegedly fired the gun drove away from the scene in the same car the victim had also been travelling in before then.
The vehicle is described as a silver/grey Skoda estate with registration number 3383 HCN.
Grete Lien Metlid of Oslo Police confirmed that they are now searching for both the car and the shooter. She told The Foreigner that, “we are working on the age, colour, height and description” of who they believe the perpetrator to be.
“The police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting, but this is not the assassin. He [the gunman] still at large,” she said to reporters.
According to officers, “CCTV footage from the petrol station is being analysed, and crime investigators analysed the scene of the shooting last night. Witness’s were questioned …and their observations are helping police determine what happened.”
Police say they do not currently view the crime is connected to gang violence, but have notified the border control agency of the car.
“They have no concrete information to add as yet,” officers concluded.
