I'd make a joke about a certain bow-wielding Avenger snapping and becoming a homicidal maniac, but it would probably be in very poor taste.

Anyways, RIP to the victims.

R.I.P to the victims and not even trying to be funny/make satire obliviously but it must be some deranged Avengers fan/extremely die hard medieval times obsessed person.

Was it a crossbow?

Sounds like his wavelength was a few kHz short of a MHz.

Appears that the suspect was a local white convert to Islam, and "known" to police.

I hope we get the full story at some point, I'm very curious how someone can kill 5 people, in a close quarters, well lit location with a bow.  Modern bows are powerful and fairly easy to use, but an arrow is still an arrow and people don't die like henchmen in a work of fiction.

the answer, none of the deaths were by the bow and arrow

A man charged with killing five people and wounding four others in southern Norway when he attacked strangers with a bow and arrows and knives pleaded guilty Wednesday to murder and attempted murder.

“I admit criminal guilt for the entire charges,” the suspect, Espen Andersen Bråthen, 38, said as his trial started at Buskerud District Court, according to Norwegian news agency NTB.

The five victims were fatally stabbed on Oct. 13, 2021. Andersen Bråthen also faces 11 counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting at people with a bow and arrows in Kongsberg, a former mining town of 26,000 people.

<snip>

He listened quietly as the charges were read out loud Wednesday. Although he has confessed, he may not end up in a Norwegian prison.

Prosecutors want him sentenced to compulsory mental health care, saying he was in a “strongly deviating state of mind” during last year's attack
, according to charging documents obtained by The Associated Press.

So the original reporting was highly inaccurate, again.

I was going to say "inb4 some American ghoul tries to make it an argument against gun control somehow" but you actually beat me to it. Great job.

I would rather spend the rest of my life in a Norwegian prison than in the kind of mental health facility a person who have killed several people ends up in.
