Gunman kills 1, injures 3 in German disco

A gunman opened fire in a nightclub in Konstanz, Germany, Sunday killing one person and injuring three more.

The shooter was an Iraqi citizen who had lived in Germany for a long time, and police believe they can rule out terrorism as his goal. "The motives of the man who acted alone are unclear," said a police representative. "We are still investigating but the circumstances surrounding the events at the disco in the evening before the shooting are a bit clearer and this led us to rule out a terrorism background."

The attacker was fatally shot by police at the scene and died at a nearby hospital.
