The alleged perpetrator reportedly opened fire at the first shisha bar in Hanau’s downtown, killing three people, before driving to the neighborhood of Kesselstadt and opening fire at a second shisha bar, where five people died. Authorities said that the shooter had “xenophobic motives.”

Following the shooting, police sealed off the area while special forces launched a major search.

They subsequently found the 43-year-old suspect dead in his home nearby his 72-year-old mother’s corpse early Thursday. Authorities believe that the suspect returned home following the attack and committed suicide. Police also found a letter claiming responsibility for the attack in the suspect’s home.

 


A third reported shooting in the northern neighborhood of Lamboy was not confirmed, but a large police contingent was in the area, the DPA news agency reported.

Police have set up a hotline for members of the public with information that could lead to the suspects.

Germany has suffered several attacks in recent years, one of which, claimed by ISIL, killed 12 people in the heart of Berlin in December 2016.

Far-right attacks have become a particular concern for German authorities.
