Gunman shot by the police
Following the police's statements, the black clothed boy entered the Albertville junior high at 9.30AM and shot around him while class. After, he escaped and shot an employee of the local hospital for psychical invalids. Then the contravener forced a man to help him fly with his car. On the drive to Wendlingen he let the man go and the flight ended at a car dealership in Wendlichen. At the gunfight two pedestrians were killed and two policemen hurt.
Probably used gun of his parents
The contravener has, following the police, finished his junior high diploma on the Albertville junior high school. Baden-Württemberg's education minister said the boy would have kept a low profile in school and apprenticed after. His parents own legal weapons, one of them was missing when the police checked their house at Leutenbach near Winnenden.
The bloody deed reminds of the gun rampage at Erfurt on 04/26/02 when a former pupil of the Gutenberg secondary school shot 16 people and himself within only a few minutes.
