A 20-year-old cashier at a gas station in Germany in Idar-Oberstein (Rhineland-Palatinate) was shot in the head on Saturday. She informed the police and the prosecution in a press conference that he was killed by a customer who the cashier indicated the lack of a mask and refused to sell beer. The murder suspect was arrested.
The 49-year-old offender, at about 7.45 p.m., on Saturday, entered the Aral gas station without a mask, put six cans of beer on the counter and wanted to pay. The cashier explained to him that he had to wear a mask and refused to sell beer, the German daily Bild wrote.
An hour later, the customer again appeared at the station, this time wearing a mask, took another six cans of beer and went to the cash register. “There he took off his mouth and nose guard,” Prosecutor Kay Fuhrman said. The cashier again advised the man to put on a mask, then the offender pulled out a pistol and shot the 20-year-old.
“The perpetrator’s statements about motive were stunned,” Bild wrote. According to Prosecutor Foreman, the detainee said during interrogation that he forgot his mask during his first visit to Aral, and was therefore forbidden to drink beer. At home, increasingly worried about the situation, he took the gun and went back to the gas station. He wasn’t wearing the mask properly on purpose to provoke the cashier’s reaction. Then “without hesitation” pulled the trigger.
The killer, who was arrested on Sunday morning, said the COVID-19 pandemic was bothering him badly. It seemed to him that the victim was “responsible for the whole situation because she was following the rules.” – Witness.
