Shots are fired at a mother and her daughter in the Westerwald. A little later, a man was shot dead at a kiosk 90 kilometers away. The police are investigating a possible connection.

Breitscheid/Koblenz – One day after the fatal shots at a 36-year-old in a kiosk in Dormagen (NRW), there are still indications that the alleged perpetrator shot two people in Westerwald on the same day. The public prosecutor’s office in Koblenz announced in the evening that it was a mother and her daughter. Both are still on medical treatment. They were found near Breitscheid in Rhineland-Palatinate – around 90 kilometers from Dormagen.

A 55-year-old man wanted as a suspect after the crime in Dormagen was discovered a few hours later about a kilometer away on the side of the road with a fatal gunshot wound to the head. The circumstances pointed to a suicide in the case of the Kosovar, the investigators had said. He and the man who was shot were no strangers to the police.

There are indications that the 55-year-old could have fired the shots in the Westerwald, the Koblenz public prosecutor said. This act is considered attempted homicide.

After the deadly shots in the kiosk, the police had searched for the shooter with dozens of officers. A police helicopter was also used. The background to the fact is still open, it said. dpa
