The suspect was found by emergency services around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday night in the attic of the building in the municipality of Milower Land, said a police spokeswoman. An emergency doctor was only able to determine death. The exact circumstances of the death must now be clarified.
According to police, the “highly aggressive” suspect fired several shots from and into the house on Saturday night and Saturday evening. The emergency services tried in vain to establish contact with him for hours. Finally they were able to get into the house. What actually happened there that night initially remained unclear, as did the shooter’s motive. Securing the crime scene and forensic investigations were initiated.
In addition to the man, there was originally a child, his mother and another suspect in the house. The police who arrived on Friday afternoon supported the youth welfare office in enforcing a district court decision. Special units were also ordered to the scene due to an assumed risk to the child’s well-being.
Mother and child were brought to safety on Saturday night. The woman left the house to hand the child over to the youth welfare office. Shots were fired from inside the building. According to police, no one was injured.
One of the two men was arrested on Friday afternoon when he came out of the building armed. The Potsdam district court issued an arrest warrant and the suspect was taken to the Wriezen prison. The other, however, barricaded himself in the house until the end of the operation.
The situation remained confusing throughout Saturday. Around midday there was an explosion and an armored police vehicle set off. It was still unclear hours later where the detonation came from. As they advanced, the emergency services seized several weapons. Firearms, ammunition and other dangerous items such as a hand grenade were found on the residential property and in the house, it said.
