Two people were killed in a shooting in a private home in the Bavarian town of Speichersdorf on Wednesday morning, the second apparent domestic tragedy in Bavaria in as many days.


A police spokesman said authorities were alerted to the sound of gunshots in the home around 11:30 am. They arrived to find that a man had killed his wife and then himself in the incident, but the couple’s four children were not physically injured.

The children were taken to the hospital for observation.

Police said the motive for the shooting remains unclear.

This incident comes the day after a family argument turned into a shooting that caused two deaths at a regional court in the Bavarian city of Landshut.
