Spokeswoman Maj. Beverly Mock said German police have the suspect in Wednesday afternoon’s shooting in custody and that she could not release any further details on the victims until their next of kin have been notified.
The gunman opened fire on a bus carrying the airmen as it sat outside Terminal 2 at the airport, Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt said.
Kosovo Interior Minister Bajram Rexhepi says German police have identified the suspect who is in custody as Arif Uka, a Kosovo citizen from the northern town of Mitrovica.
“This is a devastating and a tragic event,” Rexhepi said. “We are trying to find out was this something that was organized or what was the nature of the attack.”
