Utøya

GQ has the haunting and riveting story of some of the survivors from the shootings at the youth summer camp in Norway:

One year ago, a heavily armed man dressed as a police officer appeared on the beach of a youth summer camp in Norway. The kids had no way of knowing he was targeting them for the ills of Europe. Then he started shooting. And shooting. Where were the real cops? By the end of the day, seventy-seven people had been killed, the deadliest attack in that country since World War II. As told by the survivors, these are the beat-by-beat horrors of those terrifying 198 minutes.

The shooter terrorist shot ninety-nine people and killed sixty-seven. Two more boys died indirectly, one falling after getting shot and another drowned while trying to get away from the terrorist. Many of the victims were initially in disbelief that they were hearing gunshots, thinking they were in the safest place in Norway.
