The attack, confirmed to be the work of a 55-year-old Syrian refugee by the Deutsche Welle news service and the Bild newspaper, started he nonwhite threw a Molotov cocktail into the Mcdonalds in the station, injuring a 14-year-old. The young girl fled the restaurant with her legs on fire and was taken to hospital.
The refugee-terrorist then went to a nearby pharmacy, where he took a hostage. As police intervened, the invader then attempted to set his hostage on fire as well. He was prevented from doing so when the police shot and wounded him.
Police spokesman Klaus-Stephan Becker said investigators had found a document belonging to a 55-year-old Syrian asylum seeker in the pharmacy, which likely belonged to the perpetrator now being treated in hospital.
