Norway Police Shoot Man Who Drove Stolen Ambulance Into Crowd

Norwegian police fired on a man after he drove a stolen ambulance into a group of people.

Reports have said two children in a stroller were hit by the hijacked vehicle.

An armed man stole an ambulance and drove it into several people in the Norwegian capital of Oslo on Tuesday, police said.

Authorities arrested the man after firing on the vehicle. He was not critically injured.

Dpa reported, citing local news outlets, that police were searching for a woman in connection with the incident.

An elderly couple and a mother pushing two children in a stroller were hit by the hijacked ambulance. The woman and the children were taken to hospital. All were slightly injured, including two babies.

"An armed man stole an ambulance, drove away and hit some people. We got him now," the police spokesman told Reuters.

"There is nothing to indicate that this incident is terrorism related," Oslo police operations leader Erik Hestvik said.

Public broadcaster NRK showed video of an ambulance driving in the Torshov neighborhood while several gunshots rang out.

An Oslo University hospital spokesman told Reuters that it was another ambulance that eventually thwarted the hijacker.

"One was hijacked by an armed person with a shotgun. Some minutes later one of our other ambulances managed to stop the hijacked vehicle by crashing into it. Then the police came after the crash and got him," he said.
