According to the video report, instead of being grateful for the swift and decisive action by the police, German leftists are complaining that the police used excessive force.
GOV Police were called to Flemingstraße in Münsterfeld after a 19-year-old Afghan Muslim man attacked several people in a bakery, inflicting heavy injuries on some of them. As events developed he was shot by police officers.
Apart from the shop assistants working in the bakery, a delivery van driver was attacked. He was badly wounded. Arriving police officers were instantly attacked with stones and what was probably a baton. At least one police officer was wounded. When police officers subsequently used their firearms the attacker was fatally wounded.
Prosecuting Attorney Harry Wilke said: “The fatally injured person was a 19-year-old Afghan national who lived in a nearby refugee accommodation. From what we currently know there is no evidence of a political motive.”
