Only one method of negotiation they should be employing now. Wanker.

You're right, it would violate noise regulations.

The guy is still on the loose according to radio Top. The incident is not believed to be terrorism related.

Yes, the tabloids first reported on some "negotiation" taking place but the updated ticker stated, that he escaped in a VW Caddy with GraubŁnden tags.

My (limited) observation of Switzerland for "going postal" events would suggest yes.
What I recall is something like the following

- kill family
- kill boss
- kill self

No unnecessary collateral damage as it were.

"Negotiate"? The guy, a bald man, 1.90 m height, shabby appearance, may drive a white VW caddy with canton GR plates, is on the lose!

Identity of the suspect is apparently known. They rule out an act of terrorism. Not known if he was going postal (attack happened in an office building) or a relationship related.

If you know the whereabouts of the man you can call Schaffhausen Police on: 052 624 24 24

The police released a "mug shot" of the suspect.
