Accused gunman confesses: officials
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.
