Gunman dead after killing one person and injuring four in German nightclub attack

At least one person was killed and four others injured when a sole attacker opened fire at the packed-out Grey nightclub in the city of Konstanz – close to the Swiss border – in the early hours of the morning.

The nightclub is thought to have been hosting a student night at the time of the incident, which is believed to have lasted just minutes.

The 34-year-old suspect was seriously injured during an exchange of gunfire with special command officers outside the venue as he attempted to flee at around 4.30am local time.

He later died in hospital.

Konstanz police spokesman Fritz Bezikofer told broadcaster n-tv:  “The motives of the man who acted alone are unclear.

“We are still investigating but the circumstances surrounding the events at the disco in the evening before the shooting are a bit clearer and this led us to rule out a terrorism background.”

Witnesses told German broadcaster SWR that a club doorman appeared to have been shot with an automatic pistol as he tried to stop the attacker, and described seeing victims covered in blood as they were taken to hospital.

According to reports in the Bild newspaper, the shooter was an Iraqi national and was known to police.
