Five days after the shooting at Jehovah's Witnesses in Hamburg, six injured people are still being treated in the hospital. One of them is in acute danger of death, said the deputy head of Hamburg state security, Uwe Stockmann, at a press conference. In fact, Philipp F. killed seven people on Thursday evening, four men, two women and an unborn girl. He then killed himself.
A total of nine people were physically injured in the act, seven of them suffered gunshot wounds. Seven of the injured lived in Hamburg, two in Schleswig-Holstein, Stockmann said.
The investigation into the perpetrator continued. Above all, the state security wanted to clarify the question of why. Philipp F. was a lone perpetrator who had mental problems. There is no evidence of his involvement in criminal structures or right-wing extremist networks, said the deputy head of state security.
