Transcript for Investigation into deadly shootings in Germany
Now to the investigation under way into that terror attack near frankfort, Germany. A gunman opening fire at two separate hookah lounges killing at least ten people. James Longman is there with the latest. Good morning, James. Reporter: Yeah, good morning, Michael. A far right terror attack in Germany last night. This is one of the cafes targeted. You can make out their cones marking where gun cases have been restreiffed. A cafe popular with the town's kurdish population and German chancellor Angela Merkel has been speaking this morning saying racism is a poison in German society and it's to blame for far too many crimes. This morning, 11 people including the suspected shooter are dead and several are injured in a suspected far right terror attack in Germany. Authorities say shots rang out around 10:00 P.M. Local time in the town of hanau 17 miles east of frankfort. The first target this hookah lounge where three were killed moving on to a second cafe and killing five. A ninth victim later dying of these are popular with the town's kurdish population and authorities say the attacks had an explicit anti-foreigner motive. A huge police presence descending on the area and teams setting in, bullet casings offering a glimpse of the carnage within. Police later tracked this black BMW believed to have been used to the suspect to an address in town and found him inside dead along with his 72-year-old mother. A weapon found alongside his mother understood to have owned it legally. This attack the latest in a spate of far right terror attacks and plots to plague Germany in recent months. Now, this is the third major far right incident in Germany in the last nine months. The last time I was here I reported on an attack at a synagogue and just last week authorities carried out an anti-terror raid arresting 12 people for plotting attacks on mosques across the country. This is a major problem in Germany right now. Michael. Yes, it is, James, thank you very much.
