The man charged with the murder of 25-year-old Marianne Hansen in Oslo has died

The man accused of killing 25-year-old Marianne Hansen at Hellerud in Oslo on the night of June 8 this year is dead, the newspaper VG reports.

The 30-year-old man, a Romanian citizen, died at Ullevål hospital on Friday, police lawyer Børge Enoksen in the Oslo Police District told the newspaper.

He had been hospitalized there since last Monday after he had tried to take his own life in his cell in Oslo prison the same day.

The police have previously questioned the man several times. They will complete the criminal case investigation, but there will be no main hearing in court.

“The accused has given the police a detailed explanation of the course of events and the motive for the murder and the incident on E6,” Enoksen said.

The accused’s defense counsel, Cathrine Grøndahl, has so far not wished to comment on the case to VG.

Killed out of frustration

The accused has explained that he committed the murder on the night of June 8 out of frustration – as the woman did not want to continue the relationship. The murder took place inside the apartment where Hansen lived.

The man has pleaded guilty to the murder. On Wednesday, July 7, the Oslo District Court extended the man’s imprisonment for eight weeks.

The woman got to know the man through their workplaces in Oslo, and they began a relationship a few weeks before the murder on the night of June 8.

Traffic accident

The police found a dead woman in an apartment in Hellerud east of Oslo around 7 AM on Tuesday, June 8. The police searched the address after the man collided head-on with a van on the E6 in Eidsvoll at AM the same day.

The man was also charged with attempted murder by car after the frontal collision shortly after the murder. 

He allegedly drove in the wrong lane on the E6 for about 1.3 kilometers before he deliberately drove into the oncoming car in the 110 zones on the four-lane road north.

25-year-old dies from injuries after mass shooting on Austin's 6th Street, police said

AUSTIN, Texas — A victim has reportedly died after the mass shooting that occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning in Austin on 6th Street, according to police.

Officials identified the victim as 25-year-old Douglas John Kantor and said he succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital on Sunday afternoon.

One suspect has been arrested in connection to the shooting that killed Kantor and wounded 13 others, authorities said.

Investigators continued looking for the second suspect involved on Sunday and were working to find out what led to the violence.

“This does appear to be an isolated incident between the two parties,” Chacon said.

Most, if not all of the victims were believed to be innocent bystanders, but investigators continued to review surveillance video of the area.

The gunfire erupted just before 1:30 a.m. along 6th Street, a popular area filled with bars and restaurants.

At the time, the street was barricaded to keep out vehicle traffic, Chacon said.

THE MORNING AFTER: 6th Street’s calm after overnight mass shooting

“Our officers responded very quickly,” Austin Police Department’s interim chief said. “They were able to immediately begin life-saving measures for many of these patients, including applications of tourniquets; applications of chest seals.”

Some officers drove patients to the hospital because of how chaotic the shooting scene was. Chacon said it became hard to contain the crowd and get ambulances to the wounded.

Travis Young was inside his apartment building on on 6th Street when he heard the gunshots.

“By the second gunshot, I was already on the floor,” Young said. “Popped up about 30 to 40 seconds later, and you saw bodies everywhere. People were screaming. People in pain.”

Houston resident Fred Plummer said he’s in Austin for an annual bike rally and returned to the scene of the shooting Saturday afternoon.

Plummer said he had left just moments before gunfire erupted earlier in the day.

“People were texting me asking if I was okay because they knew I was in the area,” Plummer said. “I had to say my prayers again. I was really grateful that whatever it was, moved me to leave. Its, you know, its sad.”

BREAKING: 25-year-old man killed in downtown Austin mass shooting

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A 25-year-old man has died after being injured in a mass shooting attack Saturday morning on downtown Austin’s 6th Street, according to the Austin Police Department.

Douglas John Kantor, 25, died from his injuries at an Austin hospital Sunday at 12:01 p.m., police say.

The shooting left at least 14 people hurt early Saturday morning in the 400 block of East 6th Street. Police say one juvenile suspect is in custody. Another suspect is still at-large.

During a briefing, Interim Police Chief Joseph Chacon said 11 people were receiving treatment at one hospital, while one victim went to a separate hospital, another received treatment at an emergency room and another self-transported from Austin’s busy strip of bars on 6th Street.

Chacon said most of the victims were innocent bystanders.

“Everything was totally fine,” witness Matt Perlstein said. “… there were just so many people in the street. And we just heard like, nine — a bunch — gunshots going off. Everyone got on the ground. We couldn’t even comprehend what was going on at the time. It’s still difficult to comprehend.”

APD is encouraging anyone in the community seeking support as a result of this event to contact Austin Police Department Victim Services at 512-974-5037.

Anyone with information or video of what happened is asked to call APD Homicide at 512-974-TIPS.
