Norwegian anti-LGBT shooting in which an Islamic terrorist killed two people and wounded twenty-one others. Police are treating the incident as an "act of Islamist terrorism" targeting the Oslo LGBTQ pride event, which was hosted by the local branch of the Norwegian Organisation for Sexual and Gender Diversity.

The police arrested 42-year-old Zaniar Matapour, a Norwegian citizen who grew up in Norway to Iranian-born parents. The police later confirmed that they had known of the suspect since 2015, saying that he had been radicalised into Islamic extremism. They also said he had a "history of violence and threats", as well as mental health issues. He has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and terrorism.

The shooting took place at locations associated with Oslo Pride, the local LGBT pride event hosted by the Oslo branch of the Norwegian Organisation for Sexual and Gender Diversity, the night before the planned Pride parade in Oslo. The first shooting occurred at London Pub, a popular nightclub which describes itself on its website as "the largest gay and lesbian venue in Oslo." According to one witness, the perpetrator shouted "Allahu Akbar" as he started shooting.

The perpetrator then moved to two more nearby locations, including the bar Per på hjørnet, and a takeaway restaurant. Police were called at 1:14 AM local time, and arrived minutes later. The suspect was detained five minutes after the attacks. Eighty to 100 people hid in the pub's basement during the attack, and wounded people were lying both inside and outside the bar with the police describing the scene as "chaotic".

The deceased victims were 60-year old Kaare Hesvik, a gay man celebrating pride, and 54-year old Jon Isachsen, both residing in Bærum.

Many of those present in London Pub were also on the island of Utøya during the 2011 shooting by domestic terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.

Norway has seen sustained attacks against the LGBT community and the Pride event from anti-LGBT Islamic extremists on social media.
