A week after the killing spree that killed eight at Jehovah's Witnesses in Hamburg, the police are also looking for possible accomplices. There are surveys in the vicinity of the perpetrator Philipp F., said police spokeswoman Sandra Levgrün on Thursday of the German Press Agency in Hamburg.
"Basically, these surveys are initially there to get a complete picture of Philipp F. The aim is to answer the question of why the victims and their relatives. But of course we also look to see whether there is somehow a person who bears joint responsibility under criminal law." Members of the Hamburg Weapons Club, of which the shooter was a member, are also to be questioned. Several media had previously reported.
In the act on Thursday evening a week ago, the 35-year-old German in the north of Hamburg killed seven people - including an unborn child - with shots from a semi-automatic pistol and then killed himself. Nine people were injured.
