“We have so far no information that this is terror-related,” Senior Police Chief Egil Joergen Brekke told a news conference.

“To us, this appears to be a stand-alone act, so that there is no reason to fear for the safety of the city for others. This is a person who is known to us in the past and who has a history,” Mr Brekke told reporters.

“To my knowledge, there are no others injured,” he added.

The first reports to the police shortly before 9:00 am were about a man with a knife running after another person, Mr Brekke said.

A nearby patrol car in the Bislett neighbourhood of northern Oslo rushed to the scene and first tried to stop the man by running him down before before it was strategically positioned to halt the man’s progress.

The man managed to open the car door, police spokesman Torgeir Brenden said.

He said “several shots” were then fired at the man who was later rushed to a nearby hospital where he died.

Mr Brekke could not give more detailed information, saying the Norwegian Bureau for the Investigation of Police Affairs is probing the events — which is customary in Norway when police officers use firearms.

Last month a man armed with a bow and arrow and a knife killed five people in a small town south-west of Oslo.

Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said that he understood “very well” why locals who experienced Tuesday’s events considered them dramatic in the wake of the recent incident but still felt Oslo safe.

“If you compare with other large cities in Europe, Oslo is a safe city,” he said.
