The gunman accused of killing dozens of people on an island near Oslo on Friday shot at a group of people for a period of about an hour and a half, Norwegian police said Saturday.

Police said the suspect, Anders Behring Breivik followed commands when police finally reached him.

He put down his weapons, Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim told reporters at a news conference, according to the Los Angeles Times. It was undramatic.

Breivik had two weapons.

As of Saturday, it was reported that 85 people had been gunned down at a youth camp in Utoya Island.

Police say witnesses also placed the suspect at the location near a government office in Oslo where a massive explosion killed at least 7 people.

Police said Saturday that it took 40 minutes for officers to arrive at the island, noting that there had been problems in getting boats to transport officials to the island, where a political gathering of the Worker's Youth League was taking place. The WYL is a youth branch of the country's Labor Party.
