Eight people have been killed in the shooting at a Jehovah’s Witnesses hall in Hamburg, German police have said.
Police gave the figure on their website. There was still no word on a possible motive for the shooting.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said his thoughts were with the victims of the shooting in Hamburg.
“Several members of a Jehovah community fell victim to a brutal act of violence last night,” Scholz tweeted. “My thoughts are with them and their loved ones.”
