Patient Kills Doctor in Berlin, Then Himself

Patient Kills Doctor in Berlin, Then Himself

A patient shot a doctor in a university clinic in Berlin on Tuesday before killing himself, but there were “no signs at all” of a link with militancy, police in the German capital said.
Germany is on edge because of a spate of violent attacks on civilians by men of Middle Eastern or Asian origin since July 18 that have killed 10 people. The self-styled Islamic State militant group claimed two of those four attacks before Tuesday, Reuters reported.
Berlin police said the doctor had sustained life-threatening injuries in the attack at the Benjamin Franklin campus of the Charite university hospital in the southwest of the city and died shortly afterwards.
Winfrid Wenzel, a spokesman for Berlin police, said the crime took place in the jaw surgery area of an outpatient clinic where the doctor was in a treatment session with the patient.
“In the course of the consultation, the patient pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the doctor. The attacker then directly turned the gun on himself and died as a result of the shots,” Wenzel said.
He said police did not yet have information on the suspect’s background, history, personal details or motivation.
