A sudden outburst of violence erupted on a usually peaceful Tuesday afternoon in Moss, Norway, near the sports center, Mossehallen. A man in his 30s, identified as a Swedish citizen, fell victim to a barrage of bullets, leaving him critically injured. With the gravity of his wounds, he was promptly airlifted to Ullevaal hospital. Although his injuries were severe, expectations are high for his survival.
Link to Criminal Networks
The police, upon analysis, speculate this shooting was not a random act of violence. They believe it was a targeted hit, possibly connected to a criminal network. The finger of suspicion points towards the Swedish criminal Foxtrot network. However, this suspicion is yet to be confirmed by the prosecution in charge.
State of Alert and Crisis Response
In response to the incident, local authorities have heightened border monitoring with Sweden and sought assistance from Swedish authorities. A crisis response was swiftly activated, and the Mossehallen was temporarily closed. Despite the unnerving event, the Mayor of Moss has assured the public that there is no imminent threat to the community.
The hunt for the culprits is ongoing, with the police seeking witnesses. The assumption driving the pursuit is that the assailants, who are still at large, are armed and part of a criminal network.
