Germany: Deadly shooting near synagogue in Halle
A deadly shooting broke out in the eastern German city of Halle on Wednesday afternoon, German police said, killing at least two people.
The shooting took place in the city's Paulusviertel district near where a synagogue is located, police said. It remains unclear, however, whether the synagogue is related to the shooting, although it took place the same day as Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism.
Halle police confirmed on Twitter that "multiple shots were fired" and that multiple suspects fled the scene in a car.
Police said that at least one person has been detained but asked residents to "remain alert" as other suspects may still be at large.
