On Wednesday evening, a 21-year-old man was shot in his own home in Yves in Sarpsborg. At the first questioning, the man must have explained that he was approached and shot by masked offenders.
Police lawyer Marte Sofie Kjellesvig states that the police have still not arrested anyone in connection with the case.
– Do you have suspects?
– There is no information about it, says Kjellesvig to Dagbladet and states that they still assume that it is more than one perpetrator.
The police say the information in the case indicates that the man has been shot in his head.
Judged a few days ago
The perpetrator was recently convicted of a number of crimes committed in 2017 and 2018. The most serious for which he was convicted was a sale of 400 grams of marijuana that took place about a year ago.
The court considered the fact that the 21-year-old recognized all circumstances and that this had an impact on the clarification of the conditions as mitigating. The man was sentenced to 21 days of unconditional imprisonment and 100 hours of community punishment.
"The suspect has joined all drugs after March 2018 and has broken contact with the drug environment", says the court.
– Do you think the incident could be linked to the recent lawsuit or the environment that was previously offended?
– We investigate many different hypotheses, says Kjellesvig.
The 21-year-old, who was shot in the head, was written away at the hospital on Thursday.
– Do you know which weapon was used?
– We have no information about that.
– But the 21-year-old has been hit in the head last night and is now discharged from the hospital?
– That's right.
Furthermore, Kjellesvig reports that crime technology is still working locally and that the victim is still questioning the police.
On Thursday morning, the lawyer, head of the case, Jon Granrud, told them that they had received a message about the shooting incident at 9 pm on Wednesday evening. The perpetrators then managed to get to a neighbor who informed the police.
The message led to an armed police action and large troops were deployed and the scene was blocked.
Sarpsborg Arbeiderblad has had contact with one of the neighbors in the residential area of Yven. He says he was setting up a movie when he suddenly heard a loud bang.
"The man screamed and blew heavily from his head, but was picked up by ambulance personnel and sent to the hospital for treatment," the neighbor told the newspaper.
This night investigated
The man was aware when he was sent to the Østfold hospital in Kalnes.
Granrud said it was unknown how many shots were fired, but said the police had investigated the incident during the night.
– We interviewed the victim, carried out technical research outside the door and applied it with dogs. On Thursday morning, the crime scene will be investigated by crime technicians, he says.
