As usual, the actual information is slim to none in the new age of narrative enforcement as a contrast to reporting the news. But here is what we have so far:
An armed man who was gunned down by the police at a cinema complex in Viernheim, western Germany, had a hand grenade and was wearing a suicide belt, German Bild newspaper reports.
According to the paper, the grenade was discovered by the police after the incident.
An eyewitness told Bild that the attacker was speaking in “broken German language.”
This video has an actual US report on it which also contains nearly no information although the US embassy for some reason, is claiming that tear gas was used.
The man, wearing a disguise and a cartridge belt around his shoulder, entered the Kinopolis in Viernheim at around 3pm local time.
The shooter has reportedly barricaded himself inside the premises.
A gunman has been shot dead after he opened fire at a cinema complex in Germany and took people hostage this afternoon.
Local reports suggested the man was armed with a gun, had a cartridge belt over his shoulder and fired blanks into the air.
At least 25 people were injured in the attack as a result of tear gas that he fired rather than bullets. The incident is not believed to be linked to Isis.
He is alleged to have entered the Kinopolis in Viernheim, south of Frankfurt, where he shot his gun into the air.
If there is any accuracy in these reports, its likely suicide by cop as opposed to jihad. Jihadis typically do not fire blanks.
