Approximately two hours after the Oslo explosion, Anders Behring Breivik was about 40 kilometres (25 miles) northwest of Oslo, at the lake of Tyrifjorden, where he took a ferry to the island of Utøya and the location of the Labour Party's annual Workers' Youth League (AUF) youth summer camp. Once there, he engaged in a systematic shooting spree amidst the campers before finally being apprehended. Police believe the two incidents are related.

While dressed as a police officer, Breivik asked people to gather round him before indiscriminately firing his weapons, killing and injuring numerous people. He first shot people on the island and later started shooting the escaping people in the water. A spokesman for the National Police Directorate under the Ministry of Justice and Police reported that most of the casualties were youths of about 15 and 16 years old; according to NRK, witnesses report the man beckoning the youths before shooting them. Some witnesses on the island were reported to have hidden in bathrooms or undergrowth, communicating by text message to avoid giving their positions away to the gunman.

At approximately 03:50 (CEST) on 23 July 2011, NRK and TV2, the two primary Norwegian broadcasters, broadcast a live press conference from the Sentrum politistasjon in Oslo where Norway's National Police Commissioner Øystein Mæland confirmed the number of fatalities at Utøya to have reached "at least 80" with the count expected to increase.
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg had been scheduled to visit the camp on 23 July.
