The wounded were taken to a local hospital, and, according to the police, their lives are not in danger. However, the motives behind the assault remain unclear.
In late February, a gunman, identified as 43-year-old Tobias R., went on a shooting spree in Hanau, murdering ten people and wounding six more at two shisha bars before returning home where he killed his mother and committed suicide.
