The news and JW website would indicate that the multi-Kingdom Hall in this location is this:

  • Brother_Bliss changed the title to Gunman opens fire in German city of Hamburg - Brothers and Sisters Wounded

I don’t know how trustworthy this newspaper is but it says up to 30 people were shot. 🤷‍♀️



A gunman has opened fire at a church in the German city of Hamburg, killing at least 7 people and injuring nearly two dozen others, according to local media. The gunman is believed to be among those killed.


German news website Focus said at least six people were killed and 24 injured, including seven people with serious injuries. Minutes later, the Bild newspaper said the death toll had risen to seven.

Television news footage is showing armed police entering the Kingdom Hall building, and going up the internal staircase to the upper floors (visible through the windows).


Guardian: Gunman believed to be among dead – police


The Hamburg police say that the gunman is believed to be among those killed tonight.


BNO news is quoting a police spokesperson, Holger Vehren, who said there are no known fugitives and suggested the shooter was believed to be among those killed.


“The officers themselves also heard a shot coming from the upper floors of the building. They went upstairs and also found a body there,” Vehren said.

what's the link Sofia? if you want to send it privately I appreciate it 

no link. If you have a twitter account search for "hamburg shooting" and some neighbours posted their footage. The shooting was outside the building. It seems that the shooter was found by the police later inside the building on upper floor. It looks like suicide. These are what s been wrote. REQUIRES CONFIRMATION.

I quickly realised why I need to avoid Twitter,

especially in this case where feelings are deeply involved, for my mental health… Twitter already full of people offering opinions not knowing anything, leaving racist comments about Muslims being the culprits, leaving political comments how this is not supposed to happen in Europe (stricter gun laws than in the US), posting videos claiming to be from the shooting (actually being from somewhere else), apostates and other ridiculers with their low blows making fun of the dead etc. etc. 😞
