Wiesbaden/Frankfurt (dpa/lhe) - The interior committee of the Hessian state parliament will deal with a deadly police operation in the Frankfurt train station district at its meeting this Thursday (from 12 p.m.). The left faction has submitted a list of questions about the incident and wants to know, among other things, the situation in which the shot was fired. According to a spokesman for the Interior Ministry, Interior Minister Peter Beuth (CDU) will answer the questions in the committee.
A 23-year-old is said to have initially threatened two prostitutes with a gun in a hotel in Frankfurt's red-light district last month. During the subsequent police operation, according to earlier information from the public prosecutor's office, he seriously injured a police dog with a knife. As the situation escalated, shots were fired. The man died instantly and a police officer was investigated on suspicion of manslaughter.
