Woman opens fire in German town, four killed

Four people were killed and at least one person seriously injured when a woman armed with a gun opened fire in and around a hospital in the southern German town of Loerrach, authorities said on Sunday. “The situation is under control,” said a spokes­man for local police. The wo­man was among the four dead, he added. Police said shots were first heard after an explosion in an apartment block in central Loerrach. Shortly afterwards, a woman armed with a gun ran out of the building, which caught fire. The woman entered the nearby St. Elisa­bethen-Krankenhaus hospital and fired off several rounds, police said. She was then shot dead in an exchange of fire with police.
