A body is carried away after a hostage-taking in Karlsruhe, southern Germany, Wednesday July 4, 2012. Police commandos stormed an apartment in southern Germany on Wednesday after a hostage standoff and found five bodies, including that of the gunman, a spokesman said. Inside they found the bodies of the suspect, as well as those of the court bailiff who had sought to evict the man, the locksmith who had accompanied him, the woman who was supposed to take over the apartment and another person, he said. The man opened fire when the bailiff and others went to his apartment at about 9 a.m. to eject him for failing to pay his rent, and then multiple shots were filed, killing one person.
