A deadly shooting erupted at a Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall in the German city of Hamburg on Thursday evening, leaving several dead as police said they believed the attacker had acted alone. Authorities have yet to give an official toll but at least six people are dead and seven people injured, CNN affiliate RTLNTV reported. The incident in the northern German city occurred around 9 pm.
A police spokesperson earlier said that authorities were investigating whether the shooter was among the several people found dead at the scene. After being called to the building, police saw dead and injured people on the bottom floor where an event was taking place, Hamburg police spokesman Holger Vehren told NTV.
There is no confirmed information on the motive for the crime, police said on Twitter as they urged people not to share any unconfirmed assumptions. Hamburg Mayor Peter Tschentscher expressed his deepest sympathy for the relatives of the victims, calling the reports of the incident shocking on Twitter.
