Oslo - One person was injured during an armed attack at a mosque in Norway on Saturday, police said, adding that members of the congregation had overpowered the gunman and stopped the shooting.
An older man sustained light injuries, police told a news conference, but said it was too early to say if the wounds were caused by the gunshots or sustained during the attempt to restrain the gunman.
An initial statement by the police had said one person was shot in the attack.
The suspected attacker at the al-Noor Islamic Centre near the country's capital was described as "a young white man" who appeared to have acted alone, the police added.
"He is around 20 years old, a Norwegian citizen from the area," assistant chief of police Rune Skjold told Reuters.
