Sketching out an initial profile of the killer, who was born in Germany and held dual German and Iranian citizenship, police and prosecutors said there was no evidence that his shooting rampage Friday evening at a McDonald’s and a nearby mall was driven by religion or the controversies surrounding immigration that have been flash points in German society and politics.
They said a search of his home found newspaper articles on shootings in Germany and other violent attacks and the German edition of “Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters,” a study by an American academic psychologist. The gunman had been treated for depression, they said.
