OSLO, Norway (AP) -- Norwegian police say a gunman fired at youths on an island retreat for 1 1/2 hours before surrendering to police, and that it took them 40 minutes to reach the island after they were called.

That shooting spree came just hours after an explosion at a government building in Oslo on Friday. Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim said Saturday that blast was caused by a car bomb.

At least 87 people were killed on the island.

Another seven died in the earlier bombing.
