OSLO - Norwegian police told Reuters that the death toll in the island shooting northwest of Oslo has now risen to 85 from 84.

"Eighty-five people are now confirmed dead from the island shooting," said Oslo police spokeswoman Trine Dyngeland.

Emergency personnel have been scouring the water with boats and underwater cameras in a search for shooting victims who sought to flee from the gunman.

Asked about media reports that some witnesses believed there was a second shooter, Dyngeland said: "There are no concrete reports of a second gunman, although we're not excluding any possibilities."
