HANAU, Germany —
Federal prosecutors say they are taking charge of the investigating into a mass shooting in the German city of Hanau that left 11 people dead, including the suspect.
The move comes amid German media reports that an online video linked to the suspect indicated he may have had a far-right motive.
Nine people were killed at two hookah bars overnight. Police later said they found the suspected shooter and another person at a house not far from the second bar.
The Federal Prosecutors Office in Karlsruhe, which handles serious crimes, said it planned to hold a news conference later Thursday.
