Two Killed, Several Injured In Shooting Near German Synagogue on Yom Kippur
Two people were killed and several more wounded in Halle, Germany, on Wednesday when shooters opened fire near a synagogue on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year.
After several shots were fired, the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle, ABC News reported, though police say one individual is in custody.
In a tweet, police asked the community to “stay alert” and remain indoors as they continued to search for more suspects.
"Several shots were fired," the tweet read, according to CNN, adding: "Stay alert. We are investigating in the Halle area and are stabilizing the situation, until we have all (the) information."
CNN also reported that one witness said he saw a man dressed in army gear and wearing a steel helmet as he drove by the synagogue.
