Six people are dead and two injured after a shooting in the German town of Rot am See on Friday.
Aalen police told reporters that they believed some or all of the victims were members of the 26-year-old suspect’s family. Officers on Friday were able to “have a coherent conversation” with him, they said, but still could not ascertain his motive.
The suspect will be brought before a judge Saturday afternoon.
Three of those killed were men aged 36, 65 and 69, while the three others were women aged 36, 56 and 62. The police confirmed that two of the deceased were the suspect’s parents.
Two other victims were alive and being treated in a local hospital, one with life-threatening injuries.
Two people were found inside the house, and four people in front of it.
The two injured victims were a man and a woman, whom the authorities said were “not locals,” and that they were trying to determine what relationship they might have had to the suspect.
