Sev­eral shots fired at home for asy­lum seek­ers

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

BERLIN — Sev­eral shots were fired early Mon­day at a home for asy­lum seek­ers in western Ger­many and one res­i­dent was lightly in­jured, po­lice said. The shots were fired at a win­dow of the build­ing in the town of Dreie­ich at around 2.30 a.m (0130 GMT), and one hit a 23-year-old asy­lum seeker who was sleep­ing, ac­cord­ing to po­lice in Of­fen­bach, near Frank­furt. He was taken to a hos­pi­tal, but was able to leave shortly af­ter­ward. It wasn’t im­me­di­ately clear who was re­spon­si­ble for the in­ci­dent or what the mo­tive was. How­ever, Darm­stadt pros­e­cu­tors’ spokes­woman Nina Reininger told news agency dpa: “If some­one shoots at hous­ing which has peo­ple in­side, I as­sume that it is a tar­geted at­tack.’’ Po­lice didn’t spec­ify the na­tion­al­ity of the in­jured mi­grant.
