Squid Game enthusiast thought sounds of a killing spree were coming from Netflix during the Norway incident.
Sarkis Younan, 24, was in her house near the shop where the rampage began, watching a Korean TV show. She recalls seeing armed cops attempting to apprehend the criminal. As she watched Squid Game on TV, a witness to the bow and arrow rampage in Norway assumed the sounds of people being slain were coming from her TV.
After yesterday’s attack, which left five people dead and several others injured, police in Kongsberg confirmed the arrest of a male suspect.
“From the knowledge we now have, this person carried out these crimes alone,” stated Police Chief Oeyvind Aas.
Police have established that he is a 37-year-old Danish citizen who lives in Kongsberg.
He began throwing arrows inside a Coop Extra around 6.13 p.m., according to witnesses. According to the Mirror, Sarkis Younan was sitting next to the shop, watching Netflix’s new smash show Squid Game.
She told the local press: “I was sitting on my chair, watching Squid Game, when I heard and saw sirens.
“I assumed it was from a TV show. ‘Put down your firearm!’ said the cops suddenly.” Squid Game is a South Korean series that has recently risen to the top of Netflix’s ratings. It revolves around characters fighting to the death in order to win a large sum of money.
Police entered the shop, according to the 24-year-old student, while other armed officers ordered locals to stay indoors.
Following the man’s detention, a terror investigation was begun.
He is believed to have gotten into a fight with authorities on the site and attempted to flee before being captured little over 30 minutes after the incident was initially reported.
According to reports, an arrow was shot in the back of a responding cop.
There were at least eight ambulances on the site, as well as three air ambulances.
The Oslo University Hospital has been placed on high alert to accept victims.
According to police, they are now looking into the likelihood that he utilized other weapons throughout his spree.
The incident was described as “gruesome” by town mayor Kari Anne Sand.
She stated that the attack took place in the Vestiden neighborhood, which includes apartments, stores, and a university campus.
She added in an interview with the VG newspaper: “It’s a tragedy for everyone involved. I’m at a loss for words.
“This is a surprising tragedy that we never imagined would occur in Norway.”
It’s been just over a decade since far-right terrorist Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in Norway. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
