Earlier today a man went on a rampage in the German city of Heidelberg, running his car into pedestrians and killing one person while injuring two others. After his car crashed, the perpetrator got out brandishing a knife. He ran away, but when police caught up with him, he refused to drop the knife, so he was shot.
There’s no indication of any Mohammed Coefficient to the incident. Police say the suspect is a mentally ill German citizen “without a migration background”.
The first video below shows the point where the attacker was surrounded by police, and includes the sound of a single gunshot. The second is a brief news clip from German TV.
