Attack[edit | edit source]

Tributes at the spot where the attack took place, the sign translates to "WHY?"

On 7 April 2018, a man drove a camper van into people seated outside restaurants in a pedestrianised square in the old part of the German city of Münster.[1][2] Police said the attacker drove into "several cafe and restaurant terraces in a major square in the centre of Münster".[2] The perpetrator then shot himself dead.[2]

The attack killed two people, and injured about 20 others, 6 seriously.[2]

The motive for the attack is currently unknown.[3]

Perpetrator[edit | edit source]

The attacker was identified by media sources as a 48-year-old German national named Jens R. born about "an hour south" of the city,[4][5] who had previously suffered from psychiatric illness. State Interior Minister Herbert Reul said on the day of the attack that there was no indication of an Islamist background of the attack.[5]

Media reported that Jens R. was born on 1 May 1969, and had resided in Münster. Deutsche Welle described him as a "wealthy designer."[1] He was known as small-time criminal, who stole cell phones and car radios to finance his drug addiction. He had said in the past that he wanted to commit suicide in a spectacular way. Authorities also considered the possibility that he committed the crime due to relationship problems.[6]

Context[edit | edit source]

The city of Münster had been planning to install security bollards in public areas, although the list of public spaces regarded as high-risk and slated to receive bollards did not include the location of this attack.[7]
