It is too early to say anything about what has happened, Bruvoll points out.

– We will provide more information as soon as possible, she says.

The police are now asking any witnesses to contact the police on telephone 02800. This concerns people who have been in the pedestrian street in Arendal by Boots pharmacy between 9am and 9.25am on Tuesday.

The incident took place inside the Boots pharmacy in the center of Arendal, confirms managing director Kathrine Mehlin in the Boots pharmacy.

– This is a terrible tragedy for everyone involved. We focus on taking care of those affected. I can confirm that it happened inside our pharmacy, but we don’t know anything more than that, says Mehlin to Dagbladet.

A crisis team is now on its way to Arendal.

– What becomes important is to take care of those who are involved or affected in any way. We want to be as much support as possible, says Mehlin, adding that the pharmacy is temporarily closed.
