The Lübecker Nachrichten newspaper wrote that 2 of the 14 people wounded were in serious condition and that the suspected perpetrator had been apprehended. Hingst said it wasn't clear whether it belonged to the suspect, but said there had been reports of smoke coming out of the backpack.

"There are now no indications the man was political radicalised and no signs of a terrorist background".
