COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Norwegian police say the teenage stepsister of a man suspected of an attempted terrorist attack on a mosque was shot three times in the head and once in the chest by a .22-caliber rifle that was later found in his car.

Oslo police told Norwegian news agency NTB that an autopsy report could not establish when 17-year-old Johanne Ihle-Hansen was killed other than it was on the same day — Aug. 10 — that Philip Manshaus stormed an Oslo mosque with guns before being overpowered.

Manshaus has confessed to the mosque attack. He reportedly was inspired by deadly shootings in New Zealand and in El Paso, Texas.


The 22-year-old, who is also suspected of killing Ihle-Hansen, is in pre-trial detention.
