Germany: Investigation underway after shooter kills two in Halle

Germany, Halle
October 09, 2019 at 21:54 GMT +00:00 · Published

A police investigation is underway after a gunman killed two people and critically injured two more in the city of Halle on Wednesday.

One woman was killed near a synagogue as celebrations for the festival Yom Kimpur were underway, the gunman then attacked a nearby kebab shop killing one male customer.

Footage shows a heavy police presence outside both crime scenes as well as what appears to be the body of a victim behind a police shroud.

Police later arrested the suspected attacker after he fled the city. No motive has yet been formally established but authorities believe the attack was anti-Semitic in nature.

A separate shooting was also reported in the neighbouring town of Landsberg, but it's not clear whether the two incidents are connected.
