On Monday shortly before 10 p.m., the 23-year-old LL * became a murderer. With a gun he straightened his father and fled. The police were there in no time after being alerted by neighbors about the firing. He was on the run and armed all night until Tuesday noon. The police searched with a large contingent and air support. Shortly before 1 p.m., he was located two kilometers from the crime scene thanks to a tip in a courtyard. A jogger saw him standing there.
While police spokesman Adrian Gaugler was informing the media about the crime in front of the family’s house, the police surrounded the courtyard. The police helicopter flew low over the heads of the media crowd to the presumed whereabouts. About a quarter of an hour later, Gaugler was able to report the arrest. L. allowed himself to be arrested without resistance. In the courtyard, he sought refuge with a former school colleague, as research of 20 minutes showed. The prosecution will apply for pre-trial detention shortly, a spokesman confirmed on request.
“He was made ready”
The trained production mechanic, who only successfully completed his apprenticeship at the canton two years ago, was an experienced and accomplished field shooter. He also measured himself with the assault rifle in competitions over 300 meters. Most recently he was active at the Bubendorf field rifle club. It is known that in addition to the military orderly weapon, he also owned a pistol. It is not yet known what the murder weapon was.
L. was considered a quiet guy. An acquaintance of his says he didn’t talk much and was very withdrawn as a child. But he also knows: «L. suffered from his father. He was a poor sick man and was finished off. ” A former classmate also remembers L. as a quiet “loner”. He attended the small class and later had to switch to a private school because regular school was no longer possible. “He was already a gun fanatic back then and had many hiding places in the forest.”
He also attracted attention on his train at the recruiting school. A former comrade remembers him. “Even back then, everyone was wondering why they were getting a gun,” he says.
