The 37-year-old struck a parked unit automobile with a bat in a city of Gelsenkirchen on Sunday and threatened dual officers station by a car with a knife, internal military pronounced in a statement.
One of a officers dismissed his gun 4 times, murdering a assailant. Investigators are still looking into reports that a male shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater) during a assault.
While military so distant can't definitively order out an nonconformist link, a hunt of a man’s home has “not reliable initial suspicions of a militant motive”.
Investigators also have justification that a assailant suffered from “a psychological illness” and was famous to military for prior acts of assault including opposite law coercion officials.
The exploration is ongoing, a matter added.
