It is another one of these guys.
This time it happened in Halle in eastern Germany:

The moment the attacker tries to break into the synagogue by shooting at the entrance door with his shotgun! After realising that he wouldn’t be able to break through he sweared/railed and left the scene. After this moment he headed towards the turkish restaurant.#Halle pic.twitter.com/uZWTIhXUvB— MiddleEastResearch (@research_east) October 9, 2019

It looks like a Brenton Tarrant copycat attack.
In this case, the shooter livestreamed the attack on Twitch which is a video service used by gamers. I’m not going to share the footage here, but it is mirrored on the internet:
Horrible attack, I’ve pictures that seemed to show the shooter wearing what looked like a GoPro, possibly a Brenton Tarrant copycat.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
Attacks on places of worship are disgusting, period. https://t.co/cgTTgdqsJK
He tries to break into the Synagogue through what looks like the back entrance but it’s locked. Also looks like he had a lot of ammo and possibly what appear to be pipe bombs.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
After trying to blow up the gate of the Synagogue with a pipe bomb, a woman walks by him. He shoots her in the back as she walks past.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
After failing to get in through a main door, he then uses a shotgun (possibly homemade) to try and blast open another door.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
After throwing a few things over the wall (possibly small explosives) he gets back in his Volkswagen and drives off two seconds down the road.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
He then states “sorry guys” and says he will try to kill some “muds” before he dies and calls himself a “loser.”
He goes into a kebab shop, as a German man hides behind a fridge full of coca-cola. After his gun jams (this happens a lot throughout) he shoots the man.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
he mentions “the luty is shit.” The gun he’s using appears to be a fully auto submachine gun handmade. Her eis an example of one:https://t.co/F0QyyMHFLc— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
Around 22 mins into the footage (its 35 mins in total) he sees a police car and starts shooting his homemade shotgun. This is the widely seen footage on German media.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
Police shoot back at him, but he just gets in the car and drives off.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
“that was my action, I’m a complete loser.”— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
He then throws away the camera, confirmed to be a cell phone and the footage keeps going for another few minuted as cars drive by.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
The footage doesn’t appear to have been uploaded after the fact, so it must have been streamed.
I’ll just also add he never uses his real name, but rather calls himself “anon” in the video.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
To conclude for all of you political partisans our there: He does not mention any political parties in the footage or any political figures from Germany or overseas.— Chris Tomlinson (@TomlinsonCJ) October 9, 2019
He doesn’t even mention Tarrant, though it’s clear he’s inspired by him.
I’ve already said everything that I have to say about these people after Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Poway, Christchurch, etc. As a White Nationalist strategy, violent accelerationism is an empirical failure. The result of this is going to be pretty much the same as it was in New Zealand which banned semiautomatic weapons and admitted more refugees.
BREAKING: 35-mins of head-mounted camera footage of #Halle #Germany shooting was posted on video game site, showing first-person footage of his ammo and the shooting similar to that of NZ attack. Shooter says in English prior to shooting: The “root of all problems are the Jews.” pic.twitter.com/d1QZyAqBD4— Rita Katz (@Rita_Katz) October 9, 2019
The disturbing video shows attacker first espousing far-right talking points, then driving to synagogue. He grows frustrated when he cannot enter & shoots random woman in street. Appearing to improvise, enters business & kills another before fleeing (others appear to evade him). pic.twitter.com/SJwo696qoL— Rita Katz (@Rita_Katz) October 9, 2019
Attacker identifies as “Anon,” meaning “anonymous user”—a nod to chan boards & other sites. Based on this vid, he appears to have worked alone. His car was loaded w seemingly homemade weapons along w laptop and camera, suggesting a disturbing degree of planning behind his attack.— Rita Katz (@Rita_Katz) October 9, 2019
As horrific as the attack was, several variables (his seeming panic, locked door at synagogue, poor function of weapons) stopped it from resulting in something far deadlier, especially considering how many were presumably in the synagogue for Yom Kippur & his abundant weapons. pic.twitter.com/ePRpNcbZ6a— Rita Katz (@Rita_Katz) October 9, 2019
The similarity between this video and New Zealand attacker’s underscores that these are not isolated attacks by people merely holding similar beliefs. Today’s attack is another installment from a global terrorist network, linked together via online safe havens much like ISIS. pic.twitter.com/CqVa5sO24p— Rita Katz (@Rita_Katz) October 9, 2019
No one is going to sympathize with the shooter.
It is already Christmas morning for the familiar cast of Eurocrat globalists:
I am shocked by the brutal attacks in #Halle – on this day, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims. On this day we stand in solidarity with the #Jewish community. pic.twitter.com/nle2TKKv9p— Jean-Claude Juncker (@JunckerEU) October 9, 2019
My thoughts are with the victims of the shooting in #Halle. Let’s stop the hate. Let’s fight anti-semitism. Let’s build an open and tolerant Europe.— Guy Verhofstadt (@guyverhofstadt) October 9, 2019
This is a shocking and disgraceful attack during Yom Kippur, one of the holiest days of the year in the Jewish calendar.— Jeremy Corbyn (@jeremycorbyn) October 9, 2019
My thoughts are with the injured and those mourning, and with Jewish communities in Halle and across the world.https://t.co/04VuYmrCKa
Shocked and saddened by the tragic events in #Halle, Germany, the members of the European Parliament stood for a minute of silence today.

Justin Trudeau chimes in fresh off his blackface scandal:
Today’s senseless attack in Germany near a synagogue on Yom Kippur is a despicable and unacceptable act of hatred. Canadians are grieving with Jewish communities in Halle and around the world, and sending our deepest condolences to the victims and their families.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) October 9, 2019
Rinse and repeat.
We’ve seen this half a dozen times. What exactly was accomplished here? Who was the random woman who was killed by the shooter? Was she even Jewish?
