A woman was killed and 32 people injured when a motorist drove into two groups of people in central Berlin. Several victims are still in the hospital.

After the death drive in downtown Berlin, eight victims are still in the hospital. None of those affected are in a life-threatening condition, said a spokeswoman for the health administration.

She did not provide any further information about the injured. The Berlin “Tagesspiegel” had previously reported.

In the alleged shooting last Wednesday, a woman was killed and, according to the latest information from the public prosecutor, 32 people were injured. The 29-year-old driver is in a psychiatric hospital at the request of the prosecutor. The judiciary has charged him with one count of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder.

The man drove in two groups of people on Ku’damm and Tauentzienstrasse in western Berlin’s inner city. A school class from Bad Arolsen in Hesse, who was a guest in the capital, was particularly affected by the crime. The teacher died, and one teacher and seven students were taken to hospitals with serious injuries.

Bad Arolser school deeply affected

The school community at the Kaulbach School in Bad Arolsen expressed their deep dismay. “The incident in Berlin has completely turned our everyday life upside down,” said an entry on the school’s website on Monday. The website was initially unavailable after the incident.

The school now wrote that the surviving relatives of the deceased colleague, the injured colleague and his family as well as the affected students are in thought. She was overwhelmed “by the great sympathy and the numerous offers of help from all sides. This support helps us through this difficult time and brings us closer together.”
