After Friday's knife attack at a German university campus, a 30-year-old woman died from her injuries. The victim was an assistant professor at the University of Applied Sciences Hamm-Lippstadt, in North Rhine-Westphalia's west. Before students were able to subdue him, three other 22-year-olds were also hurt in the attack.
The suspect, a 34 year-old student at university, was taken to a psychiatric unit on Saturday. The prosecution claims that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. The prosecution claims that he tried to commit suicide and had fled the psychiatric hospital he was in earlier Friday.
Two kitchen knives were used by the suspect to attack victims randomly. The victim was stabbed eight more times in her stomach. She required emergency surgery but her life is not in peril. The injuries to the other victims, a young male and a female, were not as severe.
Sunday's statement by the university stated that it was saddened to learn of the death. She stated that the act of killing her colleague had already horrified them. However, it was inconceivable that he would now do so. Monday will see a tribute.
