2 more injured.
Two U.S. airmen were killed and two airmen were injured, one seriously, Maj. Beverly Mock, a spokeswoman for U.S. Air Forces in Europe, said.
“What we know is that a man opened fire on a bus with U.S. soldiers which was standing in front of Terminal 2 on Frankfurt airport,” said Manfred Fuellhard, spokesman from Frankfurt police.
The wounded were brought to a Frankfurt hospital, but Fuellhard would not identify which hospital.
CNN was reporting that the troops killed and injured are U.S. Air Force airmen from Royal Air Force Lakenheath base in the United Kingdom, emphasizing that the information was preliminary.
Fuellhard said the shooter is believed to be a young man from Kosovo, who had opened fire from inside the bus. He is in custody of airport security forces, Fuellhard said.
UPDATE: An unusual report from ABC News:
A gunman shouting “Allah Akbar” opened fire on a bus carrying U.S. airmen in Frankfurt, Germany, killing two and wounding two others before his gun jammed and he was subdued, officials said.
I think before we jump to any conclusions here, it’s important to note that “Allah Akbar” can sound alot like “Our Father” in the heat of the moment… or even “Adonai Eloheinu” as bullets are whizzing by… anyone assuming that this is a Jihadist attack is obviously bigoted and Islamophobic… intolerant and close-minded… and likely a xenophobe to boot.
