Police have been on alert since the knife attack on a German train recently. They were warned to expect more attacks.

The German newspaper Sudduetsche Zeitung has been reporting that there are multiple deaths, not just one, but that report is unconfirmed at this time. Original reports claimed at least 15 casualties.

The perpetrator at this point has not been revealed, nor do we know if he is at large or dead. Information is scarce on the suspect at this point.
