Let's hope it was a disguise - real police officers usually aim a lot better than random skinheads.

New info (Source: Guardian Live Blog)

According to David Berry, from the department of Political Studies at Swansea University, on NRK in the last few minutes they interviewed the head of police in Oslo and he stated that the gunman was NOT wearing a police uniform, rather a blue jumper which had a Norwegian police badge or sign on it. He also confirmed that the suspect had never worked for the police.
