Two people were killed in a shooting in the eastern German city of Halle on Wednesday and a suspect was detained, police announced, with broadcasters displaying images of an alleged perpetrator dressed in combat garb including a helmet.
The clip recorded by regional public broadcaster MDR displays the man getting out of a car and shooting four balls from back the vehicle from a long-barreled gun.
A tweet from police warned local people to remain alert. It didn’t give any details of the person arrested and said police are in the process of “stabilizing the situation.”
The head of the Jewish community in Halle, Max Privorotzki, told Spiegel magazine that gunmen in military gear had tried to force their way into a synagogue but were repelled by security personnel.
