The police have conducted a number of raids in connection with the investigation, one of which resulted in the confiscation of four guns, including a sawed-off shotgun, approximately 50 knives, iron knuckles and ammunition, Morgunblaðið reports.

At yesterday’s press conference it was announced that a man, born in 1980, was arrested on Monday in relation with the confiscation of the weapons. He will remain in custody until December 8. He has a long history with the police.

The man is a member of the motorcycle club Outlaws; there are various indications that the club is connected with the shooting. Two suspects are now in custody because of this case and a third suspect has begun serving an older sentence.

Outlaws are connected with the club Black Pistons, which has now become a formal member of Outlaws. Two Black Pistons members were recently sentenced to prison for assault and deprivation of liberty.
