Manhunt after two shot dead in German city

Manhunt after two shot dead in German city

Witnesses to an attack outside a synagogue in Halle, Germany, which killed two people on Wednesday say the perpetrators had donned combat-style clothing and were armed with multiple weapons.

Police later said one suspect had been arrested but urged people to remain careful.

Witnesses told German media they saw a man open fire wearing camouflage before fleeing in a auto.

The police warned residents to stay in their homes as the attacker was still on the run. A crime scene was in place on Humboldt Strasse, near the Jewish cemetery and the area has been cordoned off by police.

"We have a deployment in Halle", the local police said on Twitter.

Wintesses reported this occured in a kebab shop, although it is not known how many people were injured from this. It wasn't clear whether that shooting was related to the shooting in Halle.

The Bild newspaper said on its website the shooting took place in front of a synagogue.
