GUN­MAN KILLS DOOR­MAN IN NIGHT­CLUB DIS­PUTE

Windsor Star - - WORLD -

One per­son was killed and three se­ri­ously in­jured when a gun­man burst in to a night­club in south­ern Ger­many and opened fire with an as­sault ri­fle early Sun­day.

The gun­man, who was later killed in a shootout with po­lice, was orig­i­nally from Iraq, but au­thor­i­ties said it was not a ter­ror at­tack.

The 34-year-old, who has not been named, got into an ar­gu­ment with sev­eral staff mem­bers at the night­club ear­lier in the night and re­turned armed with an M16 ri­fle to take re­venge, pros­e­cu­tors said.

The dead vic­tim is be­lieved to have been work­ing as a door­man. The gun­man had a history of vi­o­lence and had pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions for as­sault and drug crimes.
