“Neighbours also described the shootings as baffling, describing the family as ‘very nice’ and ‘completely normal,’ noting that they often invited neighbours in for Pakistani food.”
“Three sisters shot and killed,” from Aftenposten, with thanks to Bruce Bawer:
A 30-year-old man was in police custody and under observation at UllevÃ¥l University Hospital Monday after he’s believed to have shot and killed all three of his sisters at the family’s home in Oslo Sunday night.
The man suspected of murdering his three sisters was himself taken to an Oslo hospital.
The three sisters, aged 13, 24 and 27, lived in the flat in Oslo’s Kalbakken district with their three brothers, their wives and children. The 30-year-old brother was the oldest, and police said he functioned as head of the household when the retired patriarch of the family was on one of his trips to Pakistan, as he was this week.
Police said they received a call Sunday night from one of the younger brothers in the home, and he reported “the shooting of a woman.” When police arrived they found all three sisters dead.
The eldest brother had fled but was captured within a half-hour and and reportedly told police “it’s probably me you’re looking for,” before he passed out….
Police said they therefore had no motive for the murders. Neighbours also described the shootings as baffling, describing the family as “very nice” and “completely normal,” noting that they often invited neighbours in for Pakistani food.
Some friends of the sisters, however, told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that there had been “a lot of quarrelling” within the family.
