Man dead after storming German school: police

BERLIN (Reuters) - A masked man who stormed an elementary school in the small German town of Emsdetten on Monday, firing shots and wounding people, is dead and all pupils have been cleared from the school, German police said.

A police spokesman from the nearby town of Steinfurt said a teacher, janitor and several students had been lightly wounded.

Another police spokesman from the city of Muenster said the man had an explosive device attached to his body, which experts were attempting to defuse.

Police said the man, whom German television reports identified as a former pupil, entered the building at 9.30 a.m. and immediately opened fire.

Police commando forces had control of the school. Emsdetten is a town of 35,000 near the Dutch border.
