Indications of far-right motive for German shooting rampage: prosecutors

KARLRSUHE, Germany (Reuters) - There are indications that a gunman who shot dead nine people in shisha bars in Hanau in an overnight rampage had a far-right motive, German federal prosecutors said on Thursday.

“Federal prosecutors have taken over the investigation and there are indications of a right-wing extremist background,” said a spokesman for the prosecutors.

Police believe the gunman returned home after his rampage and shot himself.
