    (CNN)Norwegian police have named the suspect in Wednesday's bow-and-arrow attack that left five people dead as 37-year-old Espen Andersen Bråthen.

    Earlier, police said they were treating the attack as an act of terror after officers revealed the suspect had converted to Islam and that they had concerns about his radicalization.
    The investigation "will clarify in more detail what the incidents were motivated by," the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) said Thursday in a statement.
    "The police have previously been in contact with the man, including as a result of previous concerns related to radicalization," police chief Ole Bredrup Sæverud said Thursday.

    The suspect had not appeared on their radar this year though, Sæverud indicated, saying the police had "received no reports in 2021 regarding radicalization."

    The Metropolitan Police described the attack against Conservative lawmaker David Amess as terrorism and said the early investigation "has revealed a potential motivation linked to Islamist extremism."

    London's Metropolitan Police say the killing of a British lawmaker is a terrorist attack. Sir David Amess was stabbed to death while he was meeting with constituents on Friday in a town in southeast England. A 25-year-old man was arrested at the scene. The British government is ordering a review of lawmaker security. And for more on that and the investigation, we're joined by NPR's London correspondent Frank Langfitt. Frank, thanks so much for being with us.

    almost like guns aren't the problem.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
