Shooting spree at TWO bars in German city of Hanau leaves ‘multiple dead’ #shooting #MultipleDead #emergency #ShishaBar #Hanau #Germany
Shootings at two hookah bars in the German city of Hanau and nearby Kesselstadt have resulted in multiple deaths, local media reported. Police suspect they are related, and that the perpetrator is still at large.
Video of the mass police response was posted to social media on Wednesday evening local time, along with speculation that up to eight people may have been killed at the two locations. Those reports are unconfirmed as of yet.
Citing law enforcement sources, the tabloid Bild said eight people have been killed and five more injured. The same casualty figures have been reported by local outlet Hessenschau.
German media reported that the first incident happened at Kurt-Schumacher-Platz, in central Hanau. It was followed by the shooting in Kesselstadt, which apparently involved shots fired at another hookah bar from a moving car shortly afterward. The two are being treated as related.
A third shooting, in the Lamboy district, has been reported by the local TV Hessischer Rundfunk, but remains unconfirmed as of yet.
Hanau is a city of about 100,000 residents, located just east of Frankfurt on the Mein, in the German state of Hesse.
