Norway: Suspect in Pride Month attack won’t talk to police
OSLO, Norway (AP) – The suspect in a mass shooting during an LGBTQ+ festival in Norway has refused to explain his actions to investigators and will remain in pretrial custody for the next four weeks.
The 42-year-old Norwegian citizen was arrested shortly after the attack in Oslo’s nightlife district early Saturday.
Two people were killed and more than 20 were injured in what the Norwegian security service called an “Islamist terror act.” Oslo police said they tried to question the suspect on Saturday and again on Sunday without success.
His defense lawyer told The Associated Press that the man refuses to have his statement recorded and videotaped unless police release the entire recording to the public.
