"The Oslo police district tonight has found a dead person in a residence... in Baerum. The find is linked to the event at a mosque earlier today," Oslo police spokesman Roar Hanssen said in a statement.

He added that a press conference would be held at 11 pm (2100 GMT).

A gunman has been arrested after he opened fire in a mosque near the Norwegian capital earlier on Saturday, injuring one person before being overpowered by an elderly worshipper.

The head of the mosque described the assailant, armed with multiple weapons, as a young white man dressed in black and said he was wearing a helmet and bullet proof vest.

Police were alerted to the shooting at the al-Noor Islamic centre in the Oslo suburb of Baerum shortly after 4 pm (1400 GMT).

Police said there was no indication that people other than the "young man" arrested were involved in Saturday's incident.
