Time Warp Tuesday: Shooting at the Swiss Mosque

"Gunman who shot 3 at Zurich Islamic center is found dead, police say" by Nick Cumming-Bruce and Jack Ewing New York Times   December 20, 2016

ZURICH — A gunman who opened fire Monday at an Islamic center, wounding three worshippers, has been found dead, apparently after committing suicide, the Swiss police said Tuesday.

Officials described the man as a 24-year-old Swiss citizen of Ghanaian descent, but they did not identify him by name. They said he had no known links to terrorist groups but was wanted for the fatal stabbing of a friend whose body was found Sunday at a playground in Zurich.

“We don’t believe it was a terror act,” Christiane Lentjes Meili, the chief of police for the canton of Zurich, said of the attack. “We have no evidence of a connection to terrorism.”
