This is the suspected far-right terrorist who allegedly shot nine people dead at two shisha bars in the German city of Hanau.

The 43-year-old suspect has been named by German media as Tobias R,  according to Mirror Newspaper.

The suspect reportedly left a confession letter and video in which he took responsibility the murders and expressed extreme far-right views.

Nine people were killed when a gunman stormed two sisha bars in the city late on Wednesday night.

Police traced the suspect to his home, where they found two bodies believed to be the suspect and his elderly mother.

It has been alleged that the suspect fled the scene in a car and killed his mother before taking his own life.

German media have reported that a number of the victims of the shootings were of Kurdish descent.

Can-Luca Frisenna, whose father and brother run one of the two bars, said he rushed there after learning about the shooting.

He told Reuters: “I heard my father was affected and my little brother, they run the kiosk, I don’t have much to do with it.

“But then I saw them both – they were horrified and they were crying and everything. So everyone was shocked.”

Federal prosecutors have taken charge of the investigation and are treating it as an act of terrorism.

Steffen Seibert, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman, tweeted: “Thoughts this morning are with the people of Hanau, in whose midst this terrible crime was committed.

“Deep sympathy for the affected families, who are grieving for their dead.

“We hope with those wounded that they will soon recover.”
