There was a terrible shooting in Lörrach, just 15 minutes from our house, and much closer to our church.
A woman armed with an automatic weapon has shot dead one person at a hospital in Germany before being killed by police.
A police officer was also injured in the incident in the town of Loerrach near the French and Swiss borders.
Police believe the shooting is linked to an explosion at a nearby building where they found the bodies of a man and a child.
Authorities have sealed off the area and say the situation is under control.
The shooting happened shortly after 1800 local time (1600GMT) on Sunday.
It sounds as though the woman killed her son and life partner just before rushing into the hospital to kill a male nurse. Please be in prayer for the community in Lörrach. There is always a chance in these tragic moments for people to turn to Jesus. Pray that God will use this tragedy for his glory.
