Swiss guy kills 2 women in Zürich.

https://www.20min.ch/schweiz/zuerich...erich-18661541

A 60 yr old Swiss guy today has shot 2 women (34yrs and 38 yrs old) after a hostage situation in Kreis 3 Zürich and killed himself.

At 5:22 in the morning police got a call from a woman that she needed help, and a neighbour called that she had heard somebody scream for help, police arrived at 5:28, they had contact with a man through a window and he threatened to shoot the two women if the police would not pull back. At 8:30 the guy told the police that he would surrender in 10 minutes after which the police heard several gunshots. Police immediately stormed the house only to find all 3 people very seriously wounded people. Reanimation was unsuccessful and all 3 died.

As for identity and nationality of the women or why this happened no info has been given yet. All we know is that cursing in Spanish has been heard, one of the women lived in the house and the other was a guest. The 60yr old guy did not live in the building.

Re: Swiss guy kills 2 women in Zürich.

What is the relevance of the nationality?

It was mentioned in the article so I took it over.

Personally I don't care if he is from Switzerland, Oeganda or Belgium tho an advantage could be that some people who are sensitive to such feelings can skip the "damn immigrants" part.

Such details are obviously part of the story. Should they be obscured?

And if I did, somebody else would have asked me "Why did you leave the nationality out?"
