The ambulance was stolen from the Oslo neighborhood of Rosenhoff just after 12:30 p.m. local time, police said.

Witnesses cited by public broadcaster NRK said police shot at the tires of the ambulance and the driver fired back.

It is believed police are searching for another person who may have been involved.
