Now to that deadly yom kippur attack in Germany. A heavily armed gunman arrested after shooting two people dead outside a synagogue. Officials say the suspect live streamed the attack and may have left a document online outlining his evil intent. James Longman is in Germany with the latest. Good morning, James. Reporter: Good morning. Michael. Outside the synagogue where that far right extremist tried to storm, you can just make out the bullet holes on the door. People now leaving flowers. 50 people at least were inside observing yom kippur. This was a vicious anti-semitic attack. This morning, a city in shock after a suspected far right extremist opened fire near a synagogue in Germany. He killed two people and injured more. All this on the holiest day in the jewish calendar. Yom kippur. All while live streaming the violence online. He struck two locations, targeting a synagogue during holiday services and attempting to storm inside where many had taken shelter finding the doors locked. He tried unsuccessfully to detonate a makeshift bomb and wanted to throw a hand grenade but it bounced off the door frame and exploded, this man says. He left the scene killing his first victim nearby before striking a kebab shop where another was shot and killed. After fleeing police were able to trace his getaway car and arresting him some three hours later. According to media reports, the suspect was possibly motivated by far right extremism. The suspect live streaming the attack on twitch, a social media platform known for gaming. He made hateful comments about Jews moments before getting out of the car. Twitch says it has a zero tolerance policy against hateful conduct and any act of violence is taken extremely seriously. Now, this is part of a wider trend of anti-semitic and anti-minority violence in Europe and across the world. Guys. Truly is. Yes. So disturbing.
