Ac­cused gun­man con­fesses: of­fi­cials

Edmonton Sun - - NEWS -

KARL­SRUHE — The man ac­cused of killing two in a gun at­tack near a sy­n­a­gogue in Halle, in east­ern Ger­many, has con­fessed to the crime and to a far­right, anti-semitic mo­ti­va­tion, pros­e­cu­tors said Fri­day.

They de­scribed how Stephan B., who pub­lished a racist and anti-semitic man­i­festo and live-streamed the shoot­ing Wed­nes­day, had shot two by­standers af­ter fail­ing to en­ter the sy­n­a­gogue. Only his poor aim and the un­re­li­a­bil­ity of his home­made firearms had saved from in­jury nine other peo­ple he fired upon dur­ing his halfhour ram­page, fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors said at their head­quar­ters in the city of Karl­sruhe.
