Rot am See, Germany: A 26-year-old man shot his parents and four other members of his family dead with a semi-automatic weapon in south-west Germany before calling the police and waiting for them to arrest him, authorities said on Friday.

The man, a German citizen who had a sport shooting licence, was in detention and would be questioned once his lawyer arrived, local police chief Reiner Moeller said.

“In the house and behind it, six dead people were found, three men aged 36, 65 and 69, and three women aged 36, 56 and 62,” Moeller said, adding that two of the dead were the man’s parents.

Two others were injured, one of whom remained in critical condition, and two children, aged 12 and 14, were threatened but not physically harmed, he said.
