Pakistani man becomes hero in Norway Mosque shooting

ISLAMABAD – A gunman who opened fire at a mosque outside Oslo, Norway was stopped by a 65-year-old man who put him in a chokehold, authorities reported on Sunday.

The shooting happened Saturday at the al-Noor Islamic Centre near the Norwegian capital, when the suspect, a man in his 20s, burst through a glass door just after 4 p.m. and started firing, Oslo police official Rune Skjold told reporters.

Retired Pakistani Air Force officer Mohammad Rafiq link , 65, approached the attacker first, the mosque said. “I suddenly heard shooting from outside,” Rafiq told the reporters. He intercepted and grabbed the gunman, who stuck his finger in Rafiq’s eye. Another man ran up to help.

“The man carried two shotgun-like weapons and a pistol. He broke through a glass door and fired shots,” mosque board member Irfan Mushtaq told a private channel in Oslo.
