Halle, Germany — Two people were killed in a shooting in the eastern German city of Halle on Wednesday and a suspect was arrested, police said, with broadcasters showing images of an alleged perpetrator dressed in combat garb including a helmet.
Amateur video showed a man firing shots from behind a car parked in the street. German media also showed a still image of a man in combat gear with a gun.
Daily newspaper Bild said the shooting took place in front of a synagogue, and that a hand grenade was also thrown into a Jewish cemetery. An eyewitness told media outlets that someone had also fired shots into a kebab bistro in Halle.
The violence occurred on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism.
