A gunman killed at least two people near a synagogue in Halle, Germany, on Wednesday, police said. One person has been detained.
Police said that other suspects are believed to have driven away from the scene. A witness also told German television that a gunman in camouflage also opened fire on a nearby kebab shop with an assault rifle.
“The man came up to the Doner shop, he threw something like a grenade, it didn’t explode, and he opened fire with an assault rifle. The man behind me must have died … I hid in the toilet,” the witness told a TV reporter. The shooting occurred on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism.
