A perpetrator threw a grenade into a synagogue and a Turkish kebab shop before gunning down at least two people in the German city of Halle on Wednesday. Police have arrested one suspect, but it remains unclear whether other attackers were involved. Authorities are treating the attack as a politically motivated crime, with one eyewitness describing the shooter as a man dressed in military gear and carrying a shotgun and an automatic weapon.
How are police reacting? Investigators have told civilians to remain on high alert as they conduct a manhunt following reports that a car was hijacked in a nearby town after the attack.
