Germany: School shooter arrested, 1 injury
Lloyd Gymnasium saw a school shooting, in which one was injured and the suspect was arrested.
Germany witnessed a school shooting in the northern city of Bremerhaven, according to police, revealing that they arrested the suspected gunman.
The atrocity occurred at the Lloyd Gymnasium, which is a secondary school in the middle of the city, according to a statement by the local police.
"The armed person has been arrested and is in police custody," they said, divulging that the person injured is not a student.
"Students are in their classrooms with their teachers. The police have the situation on the ground under control," the statement added.
Despite Berlin having some of the strictest gun laws in all of Europe and school shootings being rare in Germany, there has been a recent spike in gun violence, especially with the rise of the right in Europe.
A large deployment was sent into the city center - police asked Bremerhaven residents to avoid Mayor-Martin-Donandt square and the streets surrounding the secondary school.
Investigators in Essen, last week, said that they failed a school bomb assault upon arresting the 16-year-old suspected to have been planning a "Nazi terror attack."
Police in Essen stormed the teen's room in the middle of the night, taking him into custody and taking the lid off 16 "pipe bombs," in addition to anti-Muslim and anti-Jewish material.
In January, an 18-year-old student opened fire in a Heidelberg University lecture hall in southwest Germany, taking the life of a young woman and injuring 3 others before escaping and committing suicide.
Many other instances and examples of gun violence are motivated by social dominance orientation and right-wing ideology.
Europe has seen a 'rise of the radical right,' as many European groups have increasingly enacted on fear of the other, and thus turning that fear into grotesque forms of violence. The latest period in Europe saw the French rooting for the radical xenophobe Eric Zemmour, the Swedes burning a Qur'an, and full-fledged Western support for the Azov Battalion.
The United States could relate: the US experiences the most mass shootings in the world, and it is home to the loosest gun laws there are to be. In 2018 alone, there were 390 million guns in circulation, also making the US number-one in gun ownership worldwide.
