An Eritrean man was wounded in the stomach in a drive-by shooting in central Germany in what police have condemned as a xenophobic attack.
The gunman targeted his victim “completely at random and purely because of the colour skin,” said Frankfurt prosecutor Alexander Badle.
A 55-year-old man, whom police believe to be the gunman, was found dead in a car with a bullet wound to his head.
Police believe he killed himself and they found weapons at his home.
Though the attack in Wächtersbach was being seen as racist, German authorities have warned against links to the far right.
“We have no evidence in our current investigation that there were contacts with the right-wing or far-right scene,” Mr Badle said.
Germans were shocked last month when a politician who had spoken out in favour of migrants was shot dead in an attack linked to the far right.
A far-right suspect, Stephan Ernst, confessed to murdering Walter Lübcke outside his home but has since retracted his confession. Both attacks took place in the central state of Hesse.
