  • Introduction to Video Content
  • A mass shooting occurred at a Jehovah's Witness centre in Hamburg, Germany, resulting in the deaths of six people and an unborn child. The incident took place around 9 p.m. local time. Eight individuals were wounded, four of whom are in serious condition. The perpetrator, a former member of the Jehovah's Witness community, also died at the scene. Police commend their quick response, arriving within four minutes of the emergency call. Despite difficulties gaining entry due to locked doors, authorities broke through windows and swiftly intervened to protect remaining congregation members. The shooter retreated upstairs, where he ultimately took his own life. Paramedics promptly attended to the injured, describing the scene as a bloodbath. Eight individuals remain in hospital, fighting for their lives. Police efforts are praised for potentially averting a larger tragedy. Further details continue to emerge regarding the alleged shooter.
  • Subtitles section
  • Police in Hamburg, Germany, say six people have been killed in a mass shooting at a Jehovah's Witness centre.
  • A foetus was also pronounced dead.
  • The mother was wounded.
  • Overall, eight people were wounded, four of them seriously.
  • The shooting happened around 9 p.m.
  • Local time last night.
  • Now, police say the gunman is also dead and that he was a former Jehovah's Witness member.
  • Reporter Trent Murray has the latest.
  • Well, police in the city of Hamburg say they were able to get to the scene of this shooting within four minutes of the first phone call being made to emergency services.
  • They initially had trouble gaining entry to the building because it's understood the gunman had locked the doors, those first police officers instead smashing through the windows in order to try and get in there.
  • It's understood they then were able to try and intercept the gunman and prevent him from shooting any more people.
  • He ran upstairs, it's understood, and then police worked downstairs to protect the remaining members of the congregation while keeping him barricaded up there.
  • It was then that he allegedly turned the gun on himself and took his own life.
  • Paramedics were quick to also get on the scene to try and work on the injured.
  • It's understood it was, in the words of some local reporters, a bloodbath inside of that church.
  • A number of casualties, including eight people still fighting for their life in hospital.
  • Police really are being praised for their rapid response, though they say this could have been a much bigger tragedy had they not been able to get to the scene as fast as they did and also smash through those windows.
  • We are learning a little bit as well about the alleged shooter in all of this.
  • Police have said he's a 35-year-old man known as Philip F. We won't get his surname under German privacy laws.
  • He worked as a banker, but crucially was a member of the Jehovah Witness community.
  • He had recently left the church, we understood, but had left on his own accord.
  • He was not forced out.
  • They say they are not sure what the motive is yet.
  • He was a legal firearms owner.
  • He had quite a large cache of ammunition both on him at the church but also in his apartment.
  • In terms of motive, police say they are not ruling out mental illness, but they are saying it's still early in the investigation and they are trying to get to the bottom of why all of this occurred.
  • Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany himself, a former mayor of Hamburg, has decried what he said was a brutal act of violence in Germany's second biggest city.
