GlobalNews #Wuerzburg 3 dead, 5 seriously injured in Germany knife attack

 


Three people were killed and five seriously injured in a knife attack in southern Germany on Friday by a 24-year-old Somali immigrant, described by officials as having been placed under compulsory psychiatric treatment in recent days.


Police stopped and arrested the attacker in the town of Wuerzburg by firing a bullet through his thigh. They said his injuries were not life-threatening.


The man had lived in Wuerzburg since 2015, the year Germany opened its borders to more than a million migrants and refugees fleeing war and poverty. His life was not in danger and he was being questioned by police in hospital.


Among the three dead was a young boy and one of his parents, Main Post newspaper said.


As is standard practice in Germany, police did not release the name of the suspect.


Police said there was no indication that there were any other attackers, and that the situation was now under control.


Videos posted on social media showed a seemingly barefoot man holding a long knife being warded off by other men with chairs until police arrived. Another video appeared to show blood on the ground.
