Five dead have been found in a house in the German town of Königs Wusterhausen. It concerns three children (4, 8 and 10 years old) and two adults of 40 years old.
The victims all have gunshot and stab wounds. The homicide department of the police has taken over the investigation, the police and the judiciary report to the DPA news agency.
Officers found the five bodies around noon in an apartment complex south of Berlin. Police had received a call earlier in the day from someone who had not seen the residents of the house in a while.
It is still unclear what happened in the house. It is also not known whether the victims are related to each other. The police have not said anything about it yet. Rumor has it that the five have been in quarantine because of the corona virus, but the police could not confirm this.
