German police detained a 51-year-old hospital worker and conducted a murder investigation after four people were found dead and another seriously injured in a clinic near Berlin.
Police said they arrived at around 9pm on Wednesday and found a fatally injured person in several rooms of the Oberlin Clinic, a specialized orthopedic hospital in Potsdam, the capital of Brandenburg, a country surrounding Berlin.
The regional Tagesspiegel newspaper stated that they had been attacked by a knife. It stated that the victims were patients, some of whom had severe disabilities that required respiratory support.
The newspaper quoted a police source as saying that the suspect had told her husband when he returned home that she had killed someone that day, so he called the police.
