Scenes From Germany As Investigation Into Far-Right Hanau Terrorist Attack Gathers Pace

A heavy police presence and journalists were seen outside the house of the terror suspect “Tobias R.” in Hanau near Frankfurt on Thursday morning, after a double shooting left at least 11 people including the suspect dead on Wednesday night.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said early signs indicate that the Hanau shooting perpetrator had acted out of “extreme far-right, racist motives.”

It was late on Wednesday that a gunman reportedly opened fire outside one shisha bar in the city’s Heumarkt district and drove off to a second location in the Kesselstadt district where he opened fire again killing nine people and injuring several others.

A black BMW allegedly belonging to a shooting suspect has been taken on a tow truck from outside his house. The vehicle is reportedly the suspect’s personal car.

Crime scene investigators were filmed working outside one of the two shisha bars in Hanau.

The investigators can be seen inspecting the surroundings of the second location with flashlights, collecting samples in bags and placing evidence markers on the floor. Police officers and firefighters can also be seen deployed on-site overseeing the procedures.

According to reports, the suspect was a 43-year-old German citizen from Hanau. Together with his 72-year-old mother, he was found dead at his address in the early hours of Thursday morning.
