Stuttgart is no stranger to violent criminality involving swords. Long-time readers will recall the murder by sword that occurred in the city last summer, when the victim was dispatched in front of his apartment building by his culture-enriching flatmate.
The perp in this latest incident is also a culture-enricher, but probably not a Muslim, since he is described as a Serb.

Fatal shots after a traffic accident in Stuttgart!
According to police, a Serb (32) was driving a silver car in the Stuttgart-Vaihingen district on Saturday morning at about 12:40am, attracting the attention of other road users due to his unsafe driving style.
The 32-year-old then turned into a roundabout against the direction of travel, grazed a building wall and crashed head-on into an advertising pillar, which was completely destroyed.
