An ax attack left at least seven people injured in the main train station in the city of Dusseldorf. Three of the victims were seriously injured.
The suspect was identified as a 36-year old man who lived in the city of Wuppertal, located about 20 miles from Dusseldorf. He originally moved to Germany from the former Yugoslavia and “apparently has mental issues”.
Special units for crimes was immediately dispatched to the scene. An investigation is underway but there was so far no reason to believe that the incident was terrorism-related.
Authorities mentioned that the attacker had chosen his victims indiscriminately. The attacker later jumped form a nearby bridge following the incident and was arrested later, although he is in a hospital currently due to being severely injured.
