Hamburg shooter left Jehovah's Witnesses 'not on good terms'

STORY: The 35-year-old, a German citizen, used a semi-automatic pistol he had legally owned since December in the shooting on Thursday evening, a Hamburg state prosecutor said at a joint news conference with police.

The victims included four men and two women, and an unborn female child, the prosecutor said. Hamburg police said the mother survived.

Officials said the motive remained unknown, but a political reason had been ruled out. Police who raided his flat after the shooting found 15 loaded magazines of ammunition.
