A man who was at the scene of a deadly shooting in Oslo in the early hours of Saturday has described seeing people ‘running and screaming.’ The attack took place on the eve of the city’s Pride event. The march was called off on Saturday following the deadly overnight shootings at three locations including at a gay bar in the Norwegian capital.

“All events linked to Oslo Pride have been cancelled” following “clear” recommendations from police, the organisers of the march wrote on Facebook, as the Norwegian security service raised its terror alert to the highest level.

Police said they were investigating the shootings, which left two dead and at least 14 wounded, as a “terrorist attack”.

The anti-terror service later said it was being treated as an “act of Islamist terrorism”.
