According to the police, there is nothing to indicate that the shooting had been an attempt to harm anyone inside the summerhouse and is considered to be accidental, Morgunbladid reports.

However, the police consider the shooting a serious matter because bullets from rifles like these have a very long range, even a few kilometers.
