EUROPE’S BAD DAY: Gunman Who Shot 3 at Zurich Islamic Center Is Found Dead, Police Say.
A gunman who wounded three people attending prayers after opening fire at an Islamic center in Zurich has been found dead, apparently after committing suicide, the Swiss police said on Tuesday.
“Our investigation says the dead man is the shooter,” Peat Jost, a spokesman for the Zurich police, said by telephone.
Mr. Jost declined to identify the gunman, who the police said was in his 30s, but he said investigators believed he had killed himself.
On Monday, in the hours after the attack, the police found the body of a man on the Gassner Bridge, near the city center and not far from the Islamic center, but did not immediately link him to the shooting.
As tense as Europe is, we’ll likely see more attacks like this.
