Right-wing extremist injures 4 police officers in shooting

During a police raid in Georgensgmünd, Bavaria, a member of a right-wing extremist group opened fire and injured four police officers, police reported.

The 49-year-old shooter is reportedly part of a “Reichsbürger” group – people who do not recognize the Federal Republic of Germany as a legitimate state, and who tend to believe the true borders of Germany are those that existed prior to the Second World War.

The shooter himself was lightly injured in the raid and arrested by police. Officers had been deployed to examine the man’s weapons. 

Police said Bavaria’s interior minister, Joachim Herrmann, is to give a press conference at 11.30am.
