A 13-year-old and a 14-year-old girl are attacked on their way to school in the morning. Although the alleged perpetrator and two other people can be arrested, the girls are already seriously injured. One of the two later succumbed to her injuries in hospital.
After the attack on two school children in Illerkirchberg near Ulm, one of the girls died. The 14-year-old succumbed to her injuries, a police spokesman confirmed. The other girl, aged 13, was seriously injured. Both were taken to hospital after the attack.
The suspect attacked the girls around 7:30 a.m. on the street in a residential area, the spokesman said. He left it open how and where they were injured. Whether a weapon was involved initially remained just as unclear as the answer to the question of who had alerted the rescue services.
The alleged perpetrator is said to have fled to a neighboring apartment building after the attack. Officers arrested him and two other people. The mission is complete. A special task force assisted in this. There is no danger to the population, said the spokesman.
