‘They were shooting at least 100 rounds’

Rabbi Shlomo Hofmeister told the Associated Press he saw at least one person fire shots at people sitting outside a bar on the street under his window.

“They were shooting at least 100 rounds outside our building,” Mr. Hoffmeister said.

“These are all tables outside the bar. This evening is the last evening before the lockdown.”

“By midnight, all bars and rest restaurants in Ria Stria will be closed for the coming months and many people were probably able to get out to use that evening.”
