Mr Rafiq suffered minor injuries in the process and has since been branded a "hero" in the Scandinavian nation.

Norwegian media reported Sunday that the dead woman was 17 years old and the suspect's adopted younger sister.

Assistant Chief of Police Rune Skjold told reporters on Sunday the suspect, a Norwegian man, appeared to have "far-right" and "anti-immigrant" views that he had previously expressed online.

"The man carried two shotgun-like weapons and a pistol".

In 2011, anti-Muslim neo-Nazi Anders Behring Breivik massacred 77 people at a youth camp in Norway's worst peacetime atrocity, the majority of them teenagers.

The suspect will appear before a judge Monday to determine whether he will remain in police custody.

Only three people were present in the mosque at the time of the attack.

Shots were fired in the attack, but nobody at the mosque was killed.

The gunman, a white man who wore body armour and a helmet, was overpowered by people at the mosque before police arrived, Mushtaq said, according to the BBC.

"The fact that the aggressor entered a mosque armed and from the investigation so far has been found to have expressed hostile attitudes against immigrants has led the police to investigate this attack as an attempted act of terrorism", the police department said in a statement.

He also allegedly supported the man suspected of a shooting in a southern California synagogue in April, and the man accused of fatally shooting 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, earlier this month.

In the online post, references were made to a "race war" and it ended with the words "Valhalla awaits", a reference to the afterlife for those who have died in battle in Norse mythology.

Police said there was no indication that more people were involved.

Police said they were assessing whether it would be necessary to step up security at mosques on Sunday, the start of the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday. A celebration that many have been looking forward to, but the attack on the mosque in Bærum creates fear and unrest, ' she said.

Mushtaq said he had arrived at the scene shortly after being alerted about the gunman, and had gone to the back of the building while waiting for police to arrive.
